Three of the great theistic religions of our time have overlapping geographical roots and this book follows an epic journey through Europe, Africa and Western and Central Asia to explore the lives, culture and landscape of the Judaic, Christian and Muslim world.

Motivated by a yearning to understand the 'other', regardless of culture and faith, we follow the author on her adventures to ancient cities, architectural masterpieces and stunning landscapes, and share her insights, joys and struggles along the way. She attempts to move beyond mere tolerance to a place of true understanding and respect.
