Saffron Cross: The Unlikely Story of How a Christian Minister Married a Hindu Monk
Ask us here. Ask a Question What would you like to know about this product? Dana is most in her theological element when she has ostensibly stepped outside of it. Her deepest insights into her relationship with God and Fred almost spring up underfoot as she moves, serves, and worships her way around the acre Hindu monastery in northern California where Fred lived for two years as a celibate priest and student.
The rapid increase in interfaith marriage poses a significant pastoral challenge for the Christian church. One of the most positive changes for me was that being married to a Hindu has actually enriched my Christian tradition.
Faith and life are so integrated in Hinduism, and being married to Fred has forced me to do that more. One of the main ways has been vegetarianism.

One of the main misconceptions about interfaith marriage has been that people will lose their own faith. Being with Fred has made me ask more questions about my faith and it has deepened my spiritual journey. Morehead, October 28, As a multi-racial democracy, America is only a teenager.

The good news of this book is the hope that Christians can know Jesus better by loving the spiritual stranger next door. I heartily recommend you read this book. Dana Trent puts a human, and often humorous, face on the growing reality of interfaith marriage. Dana Trent takes an exceptional story and makes it somehow universal. By turns funny, endearing, challenging and illuminating, Saffron Cross describes the interfaith future of our global village.
An articulate, seasoned author, her writing style is engaging and her memoir descriptive.here
Saffron Cross Print Book J. Dana Trent - J DANA TRENT : The Upper Room
On almost every page, one finds deep truths colorfully and effortlessly conveyed through everyday adventures. This makes the book a pleasure to read. It is also significant for its interreligious content: Here is a person who really understands the nonsectarian and pluralistic component of Gaudiya Vaishnavism, not merely on an intellectual level but through real-life experience. The timing of Saffron Cross is important.
The cultural diversity in our country is changing rapidly, and so, there are likely to be many couples who are going to risk an interfaith marriage. Saffron Cross will give them courage and also concludes that each partner to the marriage can enrich the devotional life of the other. Saffron Cross is a heartfelt, beautiful story of an already faithful Christian being pulled closer to Christ through the most unlikely teacher. This book has the capacity to make you yearn for a life in which Jesus really is at the center as you journey through a budding romance, the crowded streets of India, and a nearby temple where you may find yourself bowing to a strange but faithful altar, as well.
This is a memoir not just for those already involved in interfaith relationships or ministries, but all of us who want to understand how to grow in faith alongside all our neighbors.
