Product Overview

Chosen by the esteemed fiction editor of the "Atlantic Monthly, the stories in this volume broaden the conversation begun in "God: Stories. Here are tales rooted in Islamic. Buddhist, Hindu, Quaker, and Confucian as well as Jewish and Christian beliefs. In one story, a oneeyed Chinese child learns that all heavens are not the same. In another, a wealthy moneylender finds a relic of the Prophet Muhammad and decides to keep it instead of returning it to its shrine. A father whose son begins to blindly preach the Koran becomes engaged in a fanaticism of his own. With subtlety and surprise, these stories explore issues of faith such as sacrifice, superstition, myth, and disbelief. Together, they form an illuminating prism of the religious experience as it exists today.
