The Bible is laced with stories in which strangers behave better than believers. What do these encounters with "others"—people from different cultures, religions, genders, economic and social classes—teach us about our own spiritual values, about the faith and God behind them? In Sacred Strangers, Nancy Haught leads readers through these stories, line by line, offering insight to open hearts to sacred strangers at a time when personal encounters can make us or break us—as people, Americans, and citizens of the world.
