"A beautifully realized portrait of faith in a dozen human variations."—Associated Press


"The golden volume, filled with photographs by Stephan Crasneanscki, provides sanctuary as religious leaders from around the world offer their thoughts about life and death, happiness and doubt, faith and fear. But just as remarkable, if not more so, is what the Naudets note in the introduction. There, they reveal that their new tome, which offers so much solace, was borne from the violence and hatred of Sept. 11, 2001."—Mobile Register (Alabama)


"In line with its publisher's top-notch graphic values, In God's Name presents gorgeous photo ensembles of some of the world's spiritual leaders… This is the foolproof ecumenical gift book."—Philadelphia Inquirer


"The Naudet brothers are remarkable men… this book's text has a calming effect." —publishersweekly.com/blog

This unforgettable book is the first-person account of a miracle—indeed, a series of miracles. One of the uprooted youngsters known as the Lost Boys of Sudan, John Bul Dau was 12 years old when civil war ravaged his village and shattered its age-old society, a life of herding and agriculture marked by the virtues of Dinka tribal tradition. As tracer bullets split the night and mortar shells exploded around him, John fled into the darkness—the first terrified moments of a journey that would lead him thousands of miles into an exile that was to last many years.
