Re also conflicts about land water oil and other natural resources and that local and tribal issues are often shaped by religious ideas Above all she makes clear that for the people she writes about one's sense of God is shaped by one's place on earth along the tenth parallel faith is geographic and demographicAn urgent examination of the relationship between faith and worldly power The Tenth Parallel is an essential work about the conflicts over religion nationhood and natural resources that will remake the world in the years to come.. I think reading too much into this book would be mistake This is journalism and travelogue than it is a thesis on religion in the century ahead If you want to dig for deep answers or conclusions about the relationship between Islam and Christianity in this book then that s probably a mistake Griswold went on some incredible travels over 7 years and she does this difficult topic justice with meticulous writing and humanizing interviewsBut the title of this book is misleading it s a sexy title and the topic is controversial and emotionally charged enough to attract some fiercely opinionate readers This book is a series of reports a series of vignettes a series of faces and hardships from flash points of religious violence It has a thesis resource competition and politics exacerbate the tension between the two largest religions that meet along the 10th parallel of the world but this book is no thesis It is no grand argument It s a series of faces mixed with some light but smart history and contemporary politics For me as in Kaplan s Monsoon the real litmus test for this book were Griswold s chapters on Indonesia a country I feel I know uite well having lived here for 3 years And her chapters on Indonesia are solid I learned a few unflattering things about Indonesia that I did not know before 400 churches have been burned or shut down over the past 10 years in Indonesia and churches need a variety of signatures from Muslim leaders in a community just to be built and her writing is free of hyperbole But what made this book a solid read for me is not the sexy misleading title or even the topic itself which originally drew me to the book What made this book is the journalistpoet that Griswold is She s no academic she s no religious researcher She s a poet journalist and traveler and the people she meets and the brief relationships she forms with them have greater depth and power than the messy issues that are the draw of this book
