Praise for Out of Many Faiths:
"Eboo Patel is a visionary figure in America's struggle with pluralism, religious and otherwise, and has been a tireless force for meaningful change on college campuses. With this book, we experience the sweep of his intellect and perspective. This is a field guide to the critical territory we have traversed in this eventful, young century, and to the path that lies before us if we are to rise to our promise as a nation." --Krista Tippett, founder and CEO of the On Being Project
"Eboo Patel is a true hero of the interfaith movement of America and, at a critical time in our national history, he continues his active work building bridges between cultures and religions. Read him and applaud his efforts." --Ambassador Akbar Ahmed, American University, Washington, DC
"Building on his prowess as an interfaith pioneer in American colleges, Patel offers a vision of pluralism that aims to guard against religious preference and particularism, advances everyday ethics, and invites Americans of many religious persuasions into civic participation. . . . Readers will be rewarded with Patel's rich perspective on religious diversity in America as he champions the strength of its civic identity and the possibility of religious pluralism in the years to come."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
