Sheryl A. Kujawa-Holbrook is Professor of Practical Theology at Religious Education and Claremont School of Theology. A priest of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, she is an educator, trainer, writer, and retreat and conference leader. She is on the board of the Journal of Inter-Religious Dialogue.
"From its founding, the Religious Education Association has crossed religious boundaries in an effort to learn from each other and to contribute to the education of the wider public world. That is precisely what Kujawa-Holbrook's book does. Her survey of the scholarship on interfaith education is a foundation on which other scholars and practitioners will draw. The book offers rationale for interfaith education, describes processes of education, provides multiple examples of concrete practices, and highlights the profoundly transforming outcomes that occur."
--from the introduction by Jack L. Seymour, Professor of Religious Education, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, Illinois
"Rich in theological reflection and full of practical advice for engaging across religious lines, Kujawa-Holbrook's book could not have arrived at a better moment. As religious diversity continues to grow, communities across traditions are looking for authentic ways to engage in interreligious learning. Kujawa-Holbrook makes a convincing argument that not only is this crucial for the sake of our civic health, it is, for Christians, an essential way to live out the gospel."
--Jennifer Peace, Assistant Professor of Interfaith Studies, Andover Newton Theological School, Massachusetts
"Kujawa-Holbrook's God Beyond Borders is timely and accessible, a must for those desiring a strong foundation in interreligious learning. The book is filled with insightful histories and contemporary resources. The reader walks away with a richer understanding of interreligious learning's capacity for ending religious conflict and violence. Religious educators in seminaries and congregations, as well as organizations, will welcome this volume as a rigorous and practical resource."
