Description

Everyone and everything in the world has a name. What is God's name?

In poetic text and vibrant illustrations, this modern fable celebrates the diversity and, at the same time, the unity of all people.

God must have a single name this greater and more powerful than all other names. All the people of the world set out to find God's name and each of the many seekers is sure that he or she alone has found the right name, the "only" name, for God. Finally, they come together and at last learn what God's name really is.

"In God's Name" is a spiritual celebration of all people of the world and their belief in one God.
