Conflict is an opportunity to learn and grow–and often to grow closer to one another.

Brad Hirschfield knows what it means to be a fanatic; he was one. A former activist in the West Bank, he was committed to reconstructing the Jewish state within its biblical borders. Now he is devoted to teaching inclusiveness, celebrating diversity, and delivering a message of acceptance. In You Don’t Have to Be Wrong for Me to Be Right, Rabbi Hirschfield uses his own spiritual journey to help people of all faiths find acceptance and tolerance, as well as a path to peace, understanding, and hope that will appeal to the common wisdom of all religions.

Baker & Taylor
A pioneering Jewish thinker preaches a faith that is based on biblical and Judaic scholarship and that emphasizes inclusiveness, celebrates diversity, and calls for acceptance, understanding, and hope to provide an effective path to peace that brings together the common wisdom of all religions.

So many of these “how to live a better life” authors talk a good talk but rarely do we see them practicing what they preach. Not Hirschfield. He presents a challenge, suggests how to approach it, and follows up with many examples from his own life. The book focuses on differing religious opinions (most notably on the question of Israel), but it’s very easy to see that Hirschfield’s lessons can be applied to life as a whole. Part memoir, part spiritual guide, this book’s gentle and gracious style of writing is a real treat.
