9780529113054: Undivided: A Muslim Daughter, Her Christian Mother, Their Path to Peace

"Mom, I have something I need to tell you..."They didn't talk.  Not for ten years.  Not about faith anyway.  Instead, a mother and daughter tiptoed with pain around the deepest gulf in their lives - the daughter's choice to leave the church, convert to Islam and become a practicing Muslim.  Undivided is a real-time story of healing and understanding with alternating narratives from each as they struggle to learn how to love each other in a whole new way.

Written with rare honesty and striking transparency, Undivided opens a door on the lives of an American Islamic convert, Alana Raybon, a dedicated educator, and her devout Christian mother, Patricia Raybon, an award-winning author, as they struggle to reconcile and heal their family divided by faith.

An important work for parents whose adult children have left the family's belief system, it will help those same children as they wrestle to better understand their parents.

For anyone troubled by the broader tensions between Islam and the West, this personal story distills this friction into the context of a family relationship--a journey all the more fascinating.  While a conversation is desperately needed in America between Christians and Muslims, Undivided offers a real-time conversation to follow.

Undivided is a tremendously important book for our time.  Will Patricia be able to fully trust in the Christ who "holds all things together?"

Will Alana's love for God cause her to become an outcast to her family--or provide a path that leads her back home?  And can they answer the question that both want desperately to experience: "Can we make our torn family whole again?"

Descrizione libro Thomas Nelson Publishers, United States, 2015. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Mom, I have something I need to tell you. They didn t talk. Not for ten years. Not about faith anyway. Instead, a mother and daughter tiptoed with pain around the deepest gulf in their lives - the daughter s choice to leave the church, convert to Islam and become a practicing Muslim. Undivided is a real-time story of healing and understanding with alternating narratives from each as they struggle to learn how to love each other in a whole new way.Although this is certainly a book for mothers and daughters struggling with interfaith tensions , it is equally meaningful for mothers and daughters who feel divided by tensions in general. An important work for parents whose adult children have left the family s belief system, it will help those same children as they wrestle to better understand their parents.Undivided offers an up close and personal look at the life of an Islamic convert-a young American woman-at a time when attitudes are mixed about Muslims (and Muslim women in particular), but interest in such women is high. For anyone troubled by the broader tensions between Islam and the West, this personal story distills this friction into the context of a family relationship-a journey all the more fascinating.Undivided is a tremendously important book for our time. Will Patricia be able to fully trust in the Christ who holds all things together? Will Alana find new hope or new understanding as the conversation gets deeper between them? And can they answer the question that both want desperately to experience, which is Can we make our torn family whole again?. Codice libro della libreria AAS9780529113054
