Product Description

* After earning a degree in Catholic theology, Malkovsky travels to India to study Hinduism. Swept up in the "otherness" of its Hindu, Muslim, and Buddhist peoples, he wrestles with the question, "How can Christ be unique as God's divine revelation, while other religions also exhibit holiness?" 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 and marrying a Muslim.

In the tradition of The Faith Club, Malkvosky, who holds a degree in Catholic theology, shares how his spiritual journey grew his faith, while raising questions about it that he had never considered, and how it changed his life in ways he could neverhave  imagined.

Inspiring and profound, God’s Other Children: Personal Encounters with Faith, Love, and Holiness in Sacred India offers a fascinating perspective on how people of all faiths encounter God. Author Bradley Malkovsky won the Huston Smith Publishing Prize for this manuscript from HarperOne.

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.”
