This book is more than a collection of wise words; it is the song of the human heart. It is the cry of the despairing for solace and of the outraged for justice, and it is a gasp of holy awe. These words lead us beyond language to the place from which all wisdom arises and to the wholeness that is our birthright.
Mirabai Starr, From the forward to World Wisdom Bible, Rami Shapiro, ed. Nashville: Turner Publishing, 2017.
“Move Over Gideon” – refers not only to making physical space next to the Gideon Bible in hotels, hospitals, and retreat and spirituality centers for The World Wisdom Bible, but more importantly, “Move Over Gideon” reflects our mission to “move over” the parochial thinking exemplified by the Gideon Bible and similar texts, to make room for spacious mind thinking, and spiritual insight of the world’s Perennial Wisdom and the ethic of interdependence it reveals as contained in The World Wisdom Bible.
Please join us in our efforts to share this song of the human heart with others in your home town and around the world.
