"Mom, I have something I need to tell you..."
They didn't talk. Not for ten years. Not about faith
anyway. Instead, a mother and daughter tiptoed with pain
around the deepest gulf in their lives - the daughter's
choice to leave the church, convert to Islam and become a
practicing Muslim. Undivided is a real-time story of
healing and understanding with alternating narratives from
each as they struggle to learn how to love each other in a
whole new way.
Written with rare honesty and striking transparency,
Undivided opens a door on the lives of an American Islamic
convert, Alana Raybon, a dedicated educator, and her devout
Christian mother, Patricia Raybon, an award-winning author,
as they struggle to reconcile and heal their family divided
An important work for parents whose adult children have left
the family's belief system, it will help those same children
as they wrestle to better understand their parents.
For anyone troubled by the broader tensions between Islam
and the West, this personal story distills this friction
into the context of a family relationship--a journey all the
more fascinating. While a conversation is desperately
needed in America between Christians and Muslims, Undivided
offers a real-time conversation to follow.
Undivided is a tremendously important book for our time.
Will Patricia be able to fully trust in the Christ who
"holds all things together?"
Will Alana's love for God cause her to become an outcast to
her family--or provide a path that leads her back home? And
can they answer the question that both want desperately to
experience: "Can we make our torn family whole again?"
