CIRCLE editors’ book places in Catholic Press list


An essay collection co-edited by CIRCLE co-directors Dr. Jennifer Howe Peace and Rabbi Or Rose and CIRCLE co-founder Dr. Gregory Mobley has placed in the Catholic Press Association’s annual awards.

The trio was informed via email on Saturday that My Neighbor’s Faith: Stories of Interreligious Encounter, Growth, and Transformation (Orbis, 2012) placed third in the category of Pastoral Ministry, the closest category matching its subject matter.

“The fact that such an ecumenical and interfaith work should be recognized by the Catholic Press as an outstanding contribution to pastoral ministry is significant,” the email noted.

My Neighbor’s Faith includes essays from the three co-editors as well as Dr. Mark Heim, Samuel Abbot Professor of Christian Theology at Andover Newton; Dr. Rodney L. Petersen, executive director of the Boston Theological Institute; Dr. Homayra Ziad of Trinity College, who taught a course on Islam under arrangement by CIRCLE for Andover Newton and Hebrew College in the winter 2013 term; Sojourners founder the Rev. Jim Wallis; Interfaith Youth Core founder Eboo Patel; Tikkun editor Rabbi Michael Lerner; documentarian and interfaith activist Valarie Kaur; Rev. Brian D. McLaren; and many more, 53 essays in total, with an introduction by Sister Joan Chittister.

The book is available at the Andover Newton online bookstore:
