In this revised edition of her 2011 title, Swedish archbishop Antje Jackelén abides by one driving tenet, taken from the First Letter to John: God is greater. In a time of rising political tension, Jackelén proposes a path forward: If we believe that God is greater--greater than our differences, our conflicts, and our own understanding--then we create space for communities of varying beliefs to find greater meaning and greater good, together.
