The Tenth Parallel: Dispatches from the Fault Line between Christianity and Islam by by Eliza Griswold


For seven years, poet and journalist Eliza Griswold met with Muslims and Christians throughout Asia and Africa to explore the issues firing clashes between and within these faiths. She presents her findings with objectivity, compassion, and vivid sensory detail in The Tenth Parallel. A richly observed encounter with people on both sides of the divide, Griswold's book is an excellent journey into the space “where the horizontal, secular axis of the everyday intersect[s] with the vertical, sacred world of God.” (Farrar, Straus and Giroux)
