Within George W. Braswell, Jr.’s new book, From Iran To America Encounters With Many Faiths, ($17.99, paperback, 9781498411110; $8.99, e-book, 9781498411127), readers are taken on a journey, which spans across a handful of countries, to experience the heartfelt worship of the followers of various religions. Braswell offers an unbiased look at these mostly foreign, spiritual practices. He also shares deep and personal conversations about their major beliefs, views on humanity, family life, community with other religious neighbors, and even views of an afterlife.
“The reader will be taken into the most intimate places of mosques and homes to see and hear from Iranians about what matters to them in all the varieties of concerns,” states the author. “The reader will also go into the heartland of the great world religion communities in America that are literally next door, and through visual, vocal, and visceral experiences, they will engage in a conversation about the important issues of life.”
George W. Braswell, Jr., lived in Iran during 1968-1974, and taught World Religions on the Faculty of Islamic Theology of the University of Teheran to Iranian clergy (mullahs), has heard many sermons from the mosque, and has had hundreds of conversations and meals in the mullah's homes. The author has also taught at Damavand College, a liberal arts college for Iranian women, and accompanied them to many Iranian prayer meetings only for women. George has taken several thousands of students and church folk into world religion communities in America. The author also has visited temples, mosques, and churches in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
