The book is the culmination of work by Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake’s Peace by Piece initiative. The contributors to this book are Jewish, Christian, and Muslim children aged 5 to 17 who are connected to Habitat’s Interfaith work. Youth drew pictures to describe what they think about certain elements of their own religion, and about its teachings on shelter, helping the poor, caring for the earth, being a family, and connecting to people different from oneself. This book may serve to introduce children of all ages to religions different from their own, highlighting both the familiar and unfamiliar through images and descriptions about teachings in the Abrahamic traditions. In the images compiled in this book, we see faith through the unique lens of each child, each picture. We see that youth have an uncanny ability to relate to those who are different from themselves and to relay a vision of faith that is concerned with helping those in need.
Each book is $20. Shipping and handling is included for delivery to the Continental US.
