About the Book

God’s Other Children by Bradley Malkovsky is a charming spiritual travelogue that tells the tale of a Catholic religious scholar who goes to India to study Hinduism and winds up falling in love with and marrying a Muslim.

In the tradition of The Faith Club, Malkvosky, who holds a degree in Catholic theology, shares how his spiritual journey grew his faith, while raising questions about it that he had never considered, and how it changed his life in ways he could neverhave  imagined.

Inspiring and profound, God’s Other Children: Personal Encounters with Faith, Love, and Holiness in Sacred India offers a fascinating perspective on how people of all faiths encounter God. Author Bradley Malkovsky won the Huston Smith Publishing Prize for this manuscript from HarperOne.

Critical Praise

“The most interesting and inspiring book that I have read in a very long time.” - Huston Smith, author of The World's Religions

“Refreshingly free of self-serious dogmatism, the author… offers a candid memoir about his unusual spiritual journey and a plea for ecumenical tolerance,… [and] shows how it deepened his commitment to his Christian faith.” - Kirkus Reviews

God’s Other Children is a remarkable book, and Malkovsky is a wonderful storyteller. Today more than ever we seek to understand this world’s many religions, and Malkovsky has written a classic for our time, a testimony matching our best efforts to keep the faith and celebrate the diversity around us.” - Francis X. Clooney, SJ, Parkman Professor of Divinity and Director of the Center for the Study of World Religions, Harvard University

God’s Other Children is an important work that I hope will have wide reception among scholars and ordinary readers alike. At the present moment when there is so much misunderstanding and even malicious intent among so many people, the message of this book should be especially welcomed.” - Seyyed Nasr, University Professor of Islamic Studies at George Washington University, author of Islam in the Modern World

“Seeing the working of God’s power and love among Hindus, Buddhists and Muslims, Malkovsky’s sensitive, personal and gripping account raises important questions and offers thought-provoking insights to Christians in general and Catholics in particular. His positive and hopeful approach breathes fresh air into our increasingly interreligious world.” - Swami Tyagananda, Hindu Chaplain, Harvard University and co-author of Interpreting Ramakrishna: Kali's Child Revisited

God’s Other Children is an intimate and vulnerable self-revelation of the challenges and enrichment of staying committed to one’s tradition and being open to discovery of transformative truths in other traditions. Malkovsky takes us on a journey that illumines both heart and mind.” - Anantanand Rambachan, Professor of Religion, St. Olaf College, and author of The Advaita Worldview: God, World and Humanity.

“Brad Malkovsky walks with us through his spiritual journey of intimate encounters with the Holy across religious traditions. God’s Other Children is a transformative experience, conveying how the power of Love transcends religious, social, and cultural barriers.” - Ruben L.F. Habito, author of Living Zen, Loving God, professor at Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University

“This compelling personal narrative gives rise to a new interreligious possibility—that the truth may not lie with any one religion but rather in-between them.” - Arvind Sharma, Birks Professor of Comparative Religion, McGill University, author of Our Religions
