Product Description

* After earning a degree in Catholic theology, Malkovsky travels to India to study Hinduism.

His search for the answer reveals how wonderful God is. 304 pages, hardcover from HarperOne.

Publisher's Description

God's Other Children by Bradley Malkovsky is a charming spiritual travelogue that tells the tale of a Catholic religious scholar who goes to India to study Hinduism and winds up falling in love with an Indian woman and marrying into her Muslim family.

Years ago, religious scholar Bradley Malkovsky traveled to India to immerse himself in the study of Hinduism. When he arrived, he was at once bewildered by the nation's unfamiliar customs and amazed by the hospitality and spiritual devotion of its people. He could see that God was very much present and at work in the lives of Indian Hindus, Buddhists, and Muslims and was also keenly aware that his Christian theology did not adequately prepare him to make sense of how those religions encountered God and what that might mean for his own faith.

Malkovsky's understanding of the complexities and richness of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam deepened when he fell in love with an Indian woman, Mariam, and married into her Muslim family. God's Other Children is Malkovsky's intimate memoir of his incredibly fulfilling years in India, including colorful stories of his healing by a Hindu physician, an experience at a life-changing Buddhist meditation retreat, preparing for his secret wedding, and partaking in the "lifting of the stone" at a famous Muslim shrine. This book is Malkovsky's reflection on the compelling questions about truth, God, and faith that arose during his journey. It is also his challenge to all people, as he begins to understand how the mysterious and transformative love of God as revealed in Christ is evident in every one of God's children, to open themselves up to other religions and create invaluable interfaith dialogue.

Editorial Reviews

“The most interesting and inspiring book that I have read in a very long time.”
“Refreshingly free of self-serious dogmatism, the author… offers a candid memoir about his unusual spiritual journey and a plea for ecumenical tolerance,… [and] shows how it deepened his commitment to his Christian faith.”
God’s Other Children is a spiritual adventure story that illustrates the freedom and fulfillment that can be discovered in encounters with other religions and their practices.”
God’s Other Children is a remarkable book, and Malkovsky is a wonderful storyteller. Today more than ever we seek to understand this world’s many religions, and Malkovsky has written a classic for our time, a testimony matching our best efforts to keep the faith and celebrate the diversity around us.”
God’s Other Children is an important work that I hope will have wide reception among scholars and ordinary readers alike. At the present moment when there is so much misunderstanding and even malicious intent among so many people, the message of this book should be especially welcomed.”
“Seeing the working of God’s power and love among Hindus, Buddhists and Muslims, Malkovsky’s sensitive, personal and gripping account raises important questions and offers thought-provoking insights to Christians in general and Catholics in particular. His positive and hopeful approach breathes fresh air into our increasingly interreligious world.”
God’s Other Children is an intimate and vulnerable self-revelation of the challenges and enrichment of staying committed to one’s tradition and being open to discovery of transformative truths in other traditions. Malkovsky takes us on a journey that illumines both heart and mind.”
“Brad Malkovsky walks with us through his spiritual journey of intimate encounters with the Holy across religious traditions. God’s Other Children is a transformative experience, conveying how the power of Love transcends religious, social, and cultural barriers.”
“This compelling personal narrative gives rise to a new interreligious possibility—that the truth may not lie with any one religion but rather in-between them.”
