Although some religions outright forbid interfaith marriage while others are uncomfortable with them, and although they can bring difficulties, such marriages are quite common in the United States. As a result, there is a good body of literature aiming to help interfaith marriages work and thrive. Schaper, an ordained United Church of Christ minister, whose husband is Jewish, contributes her own insights, focusing on the children of interfaith marriages. Many interfaith couples choose, or let their children choose, one faith to practice. Schaper and her husband chose to raise their child as both Christian and Jewish. Not all would agree that such an approach is possible, let alone legitimate. Schaper's book, however, is a personal and theological reflection on why she sees this choice as right: because ultimately God is one and the same despite the religious prism through which God is viewed. Helpful especially for people in Schaper's situation who desire a thoughtful foundation, this book is a good acquisition for public and academic libraries.--John Moryl, Yeshiva Univ.
