Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers: NY, 2002.
The book was slightly different than expected. Many forms of religion are included, though not all of the stories are religion oriented. As with most short story collections, I enjoyed some of the stories more than others. I did find it illuminating and thought-provoking. Each of the adolescent protagonists had reason themselves to ponder their beliefs and others. The stories range from Amish shunning to the Islamic jihad to creative inspiration as a gift from God to visions in Native American rituals.
The inspiration for the book is also worth noting. Lisa Rowe
