1. Interreligious Reflections Available in Paperback and Epub at a Price Everyone Can Afford.

 

Elijah’s “Interreligious Reflection” series provides theory for the interfaith movement.
The six published volumes were previously available at a price range that only
libraries could afford. The series has now migrated to Wipf and Stock publishers in
order to expand our market and to ensure that these books are widely available to
theorists and practitioners of interfaith.

We are launching the series in the new format on the occasion of the Parliament of
Religions in Toronto.

Our launch includes both a 40% discount on all individual series volumes, and a 50%
discount for those who purchase the entire 6-volume set.

The entire set is now available at a price that is less than what a single volume
cost
 previously.
