"As Jesus neared the end of his life, he prayed for the unity of all who believe in him: "I pray...that all of them may be one...that the world may believe that you have sent me" (John 17:20-23).
Have we answered that prayer? Not by a long shot! I am astonished that Jesus put the fulfillment of his prayer for unity in the hands of the flawed, fractious people like us. But he did.
Unity—the answer to Jesus' prayer—is what this book is about. I knew early on that the author had a lover's quarrel with his heritage. But from the get go I also knew there was something different about him. I've known a lot of people who had issues with their heritage. Many of them were angry. Bitter.
You'll find none of that spirit in this book. The author is grateful for his roots. He views his past with love, respect, and loyalty. Issues? You bet. Animosity? Not a smidgen...
