"We live in an intricate ecology of relationships. Wholeness anywhere contributes to healing everywhere." With this affirming view, Rabbi Lewis Solomon and United Church of Christ minister Bruce Epperly present a vision for our wholeness as "spiritual siblings" who can begin to heal ourselves, our neighbors, our families, and our planet. Mending the World is a frontier book, uniting the essential truths of Judaism and Christianity, infusing tradition with innovation, and offering a wealth of creative tools for spiritual transformation through prayer, meditation, healing imagination, and spiritual affirmations.

The authors of this book, a rabbi and a minister, illumine the love, compassion and wisdom in Judaism and Christianity, and, in doing so, bring readers to the shared heart of these two religions. This compact volume traces the viewpoints explaining our confusion about God; invites us to mend our hearts with a life-supporting view of a caring and loving Creator; and awakens us to our spirits and contemporary ways to heal ourselves and become God's partners in mending the world. The authors, writing with open hearts and incisive intellect, have created a magnificent work: one that honors the riches of the past and distills them into a guiding vision for the future.
