Eliza Griswold is the daughter of a Bishop and has come away from that childhood with a rather agnostic approach to faith. An interesting journalist and observer of the human condition, she deals with what she calls “the fault line” between Christianity and Islam using a geographic framework. In her “The Tenth Parallel: Dispatches from the Fault Line between Christianity and Islam,” she sends anecdotal insights into what is going on where the two faiths intersect at the tenth parallel. I found the book intensely interesting, human, witty, detailed, informative, disturbing, insightful, and informative. Before you choose to read this book, let me tell you what it is. First, it is a series of “dispatches” or transmissions from the “front” and, therefore, does not contain a lot of analysis or solutions. It is simply very informative and places the issues in context geographically and theologically. Second, readers may believe that she comes with a particularly, Christian or Islamic point of view. That did not seem to be the case for me. Indeed, she seems to be somewhat sceptical of faith as exhibited by the players in her stories. The reader will, of course, make a personal judgment. The book is worth your time.
