Saffron Cross

“The possibility that I’d get matched with anyone who wasn’t a Christian is minute, anyway, right?”

“Right,” God giggled.

Saffron Cross is the intriguing memoir of Dana, a Baptist minister, and Fred, a devout Hindu and former monk. The two meet on eHarmony and begin a sometimes daunting but ultimately inspiring journey of interfaith relationship and marriage. Trent’s compelling vignettes, often hilarious and refreshingly honest, offer readers a glimpse into the challenges of bringing together two vastly different spiritual paths into one household. This book includes chapters on an Indian ashram honeymoon, vegetarianism, Sabbath-keeping, prayer, and grief, plus other challenges of interfaith relationships.
