Some brief overview of book

A riveting investigation of the jagged fault line between the Christian and Muslim worlds The tenth parallelthe line of latitude seven hundred miles north of the equatoris a geographical and ideological front line where Christianity and Islam collide. More than half of the worlds 1. 3 billion Muslims live along the tenth parallel; so do sixty percent of the worlds 2 billion Christians.

Here, in the buzzing megacities and swarming jungles of Africa and Asia, is where the two religions meet; their encounter is shaping the future of each faith, and of whole societies as well. An award-winning investigative journalist and poet, Eliza Griswold has spent the past seven years traveling between the equator and the tenth parallel in Nigeria, the Sudan, and Somalia, and in Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines. The stories she tells in The Tenth Parallel show us that religious conflicts are also conflicts about land, water, oil, and other natural resources, and that local and tribal issues are often shaped by religious ideas.

Above all, she makes clear that, for the people she writes about, ones sense of God is shaped by ones place on earth; along the tenth parallel, faith is geographic and demographic. An urgent examination of the relationship between faith and worldly power, The Tenth Parallel is an essential work about the conflicts over religion, nationhood and natural resources that will remake the world in the years to come.
