    1. Four and a half stars. This is a really lovely, very sweet book. I've had a crazy year so it has taken me a long time to read it, but that is no reflection on the book at all.


    2. Interesting This book held some interesting concepts on religion. It challenged me to think past religion and more inwardly. Great read.



    3. I was looking for a book to help me engage with the commonalities between these three religions, but the author seemed really fixated on feelings of spirituality and on the mystic branches of these faiths rather than the more common practices and beliefs that the average practitioner of any of these three religions would actually be concerned with on a daily basis. It's not that I disagree with the emotional and more mysterious aspects of faith in an Abrahamic God, but it's presented on such a b [...]


    4. I really enjoyed this book. According to Starr, at the heart of all three Abrahamic religions are teachings about love for God, other humans and the entire creation. She skillfully shows many of these parallels under different themes such as prayer, service, etc. mostly using the sacred literature of each group. She combines her personal research with her personal experiences which makes the book something to learn from and to be inspired by. I will defintely read this book again.


    5. This book is a deeply spiritual journey to seeing God in all things. It is healing for anyone tired of religious boundaries, spiritual but not religious, or confused about seemingly incompatible dogma of different religions. Readers from every faith tradition and background can learn something from Starr.


    6. Very readable book that focuses on the common thread of love in the three great monotheistic religions. This is one of those books that doesn't really have anything new or earth shattering to say but it's just a good reminder to approach life in a loving way.


    7. Keep really wanting to like this book. Met the author at the Spiritual Directors' Int'l conference. She's cool and her story is cool and I really want to like this book. It's not that I dislike it. But it's just on the edge of . . . . hokey, I guess and it keeps me from really liking it.


    8. It is confirmationThis book confirmed my own feelings about religion and spirituality. It was a big whisper from the One that indeed he/she is drawing all beings to his/herself through the mystical traditions of all major religions.


    9. A pleasure to read. Insightful. Inspirational. Informative. There is so much to absorb, I will definitely need to read it a second and maybe a third time! Doing so will most certainly be a most enjoyable experience. I am drawn to Starr's style of writing, one that is from the heart.


    10. This book contains soft beauty within the wisdom of its words. It conveys a most meaningful intention at this critical juncture of humanity, to embrace the God of Love, which exists universally at the heart of all faiths. Recommended reading!


    11. This book touched my heart in so many ways. I feel very inspired, and I can't wait to share it with others.


    12. Very well written comparison and clear explanation of the ties that these religious faith traditions have in common. Inspiring.


    13. A thoroughly enjoyable read. It was wonderful to see the common thread between the different faiths.I pray that someday we all return to the same fold.





    14. Excellent book. Just what I need right now. It was nice to see how the three faiths are the same, and how you can use some things from the others, no matter where you are yourself.
