Win a Copy of “How to be a Perfect Stranger: The Essential Religious Etiquette Handbook”!

When I began my 12-month journey with Project Conversion in 2011, I knew I would require not one, but many guides. Slipping in and out of 12 faiths and philosophies over the course of a year demands perseverance, dedication, resources, and allies to successfully navigate the various realms of spiritual expression

While each mentor and countless teachers did a wonderful job of guiding me through each of the traditions, one book stood out as a one-of-a-kind treasure that made the difference between an embarrassing encounter and a brilliant first impression. That gem, was my copy of How to Be a Perfect Stranger: The Essential Religious Etiquette Handbook from Skylight Paths Publishing.

Whether you are a spiritual explorer, part of the interfaith movement, or simply want to connect with your religious neighbors, How to Be a Perfect Stranger is a fantastic introduction to aspects of various faith communities such as Baha’is, Hindus, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Latter-day Saints, Sihks, Unitarian Universalists and many more.

 

 

 

This book highlights many unique aspects of each faith, including:

  • The basic service structure
  • Appropriate attire
  • Type of sanctuary
  • A brief history and synopsis of the faith
  • Appropriate behavior and decorum
  • Major holidays and festivals
  • Life cycle ceremonies and so much more.

How to Be a Perfect Stranger was such an important resource during my journey that I simply cannot keep all the goodness for myself, so I’m giving away my copy in the hopes that it will bless the life and journey of another.

The giveaway only lasts this weekend, so make sure you enter to win via the entry methods found below. Spread the word and good luck!

    I feel that this book could be incredibly helpful for anyone trying to be more tolerant and understanding in our society. I personally would like to win it because, well, I’m paying for a wedding right now ;)

    I just started following you blog. I express my faith through the Christian tradition, but am very interested in other faith expressions as well. This book looks like a good guide to help me learn more about other faiths.
