9/26/16: More similar than different: Author Shari Sharifi Brown speaks to host Emma Breacain about the Abrahamic religions and “the Seven Commandments for Happiness and Prosperity”

authorShari Brown read and studied the Quran when she was young, because she needed to know whether she was actually going to go to Hell if she did not cover her hair, or if she read the wrong books. Raised Muslim in prerevolutionary Iran, Brown had the nagging feeling that there had to be more to her faith than hellfire and damnation, so she actually read her holy book. Later, she converted to Christianity, and studied that holy book as well. After that, she married into a Jewish American family, and yes, she read that book too.

Brown’s search for understanding led her to believe that people – especially people who are Muslim, Jewish, or Christian, have many more similarities than differences, and she distilled their various teachings into a book of “Seven Commandments for Happiness and Prosperity,” which is the title of her new book.

Brown thinks her seven commandments can help you improve your life and achieve your goals in short time, but what she really wants you to do after reading her book is, “Love each other. Respect each other.”
