How does a woman who grew up in rural Indiana as a fundamentalist Christian end up as a practicing Jew in New York? Angela Himsel is the seventh of eleven children from a family that belonged to the Worldwide Church of God. In search of the Holy Spirit, Angela chose to study at The Hebrew University in Jerusalem and was introduced to a thrilling new world that set her on a completely different path. Ultimately she found her own form of salvation in the most unexpected place: a mikvah in Manhattan. This story is told with warmth, humor, and a multitude of religious and philosophical insights.
At a moment when we are facing an epidemic of incivility and hate, popular CNN commentator Sally Kohn sets out to discover why we hate and how we can inoculate ourselves. The Opposite of Hate examines what motivates hateful behavior and how to challenge it with positive and empathic attitudes and actions and offers the tools to move forward together.
