Minefields and Miracles is a work of critical and contemporary significance; it considers the process of interfaith and intra-faith matters. The author starts with the problems and possibilities in Abrahamic religious relations, but she does not stop there. Her vision is global. She recognizes the insights and values of Eastern traditions as well. She shows that each religious tradition is part of human religious heritage.

To claim our common humanity and intrinsic spirituality through dialogue, she says we have got to be free, friendly and open-hearted. Her own example is to walk together, talk together and work together for the welfare of humanity. The book is an inspiring call to action.
