One Nation, Indivisible

  • Foreword by Jennifer Howe Peace
  • By Celene Ibrahim
Product Description
Comprised of the wisdom of over fifty scholars, preachers, poets, and artists, this anthology is born of the conviction that open-hearted engagement across our differences is a prerequisite for healthy civic life today. The collection offers inspiration to faith leaders, social-justice activists, and secular readers alike, while simultaneously providing an accessible window onto lived Islam. Taken as a whole, One Nation, Indivisible highlights principles and practices of anti-racism work, and its contributors argue for a robust vision of American pluralism. While most of the contributors reside in the United States, through their stories of encounter, they bring a global perspective and encourage us all, wherever we may be, to find ways of traversing our otherwise isolating enclaves. ""This prayerful, poetic, and prophetic collection will inspire you to build a nation that welcomes the contributions of all people."" --Eboo Patel, Founder and President, Interfaith Youth Core, Author, Out Of Many Faiths: Religious Diversity and the American Promise ""The next time any politician, pundit, or preacher starts a sentence with 'why don't Muslims ever. . .'--hand them One Nation, Indivisible and invite them to learn a bit more before they speak. White people have a moral obligation to speak up on white supremacy; similarly non-Muslims must speak out against Islamophobia and bigotry. Many of the dozens of scholars, poets, activists, and preachers featured in this book are not Muslim, but they share a commitment to working alongside people of every background to create an America that never has been but might yet be, in which common values of dignity and justice weave our collective destinies together. If you long for social hope, spiritual sustenance, and creative inspiration for the work that America has to do, then this collection of essays is for you."" --Paul Brandeis Raushenbush, Senior Vice President, Editor, Voices ""This heartfelt collection of spiritual and artistic works, curated by a gifted scholar and educator, calls us to renew our commitment to religious pluralism. Read, reflect, and take action "" --Or Rose, Director, The Miller Center for Interreligious Learning & Leadership, Hebrew College Celene Ibrahim is a widely published scholar and pioneering American Muslim faith leader known for her commitment to fostering Islamic learning, civic engagement, and cross-cultural encounter. Ibrahim earned highest academic honors at Princeton University, became the first Muslim degree recipient in divinity studies from Harvard University, received Brandeis University's first doctorate in Arabic and Islamic civilizations, and is currently the Muslim chaplain at Tufts University. She lectures across the United States and serves on multiple nonprofit boards. Her second book is forthcoming from Oxford University Press.
