There can only be peace on earth when there is peace between religions and their adherents. By reaching out to the young thinkers who have yet to allow their faith to evolve into prejudices that govern their lives, The Enduring Quest encourages tolerance and understanding between the various religions of the world. In non-technical language, Author Francis W. Vanderwall explores the central beliefs of the world's major religions while providing a Christian connection to those beliefs when possible. By focusing on the dreams common to all rather than issues that divide, The Enduring Quest attempts to bring the people of the world together again. Author Bio: Francis W.

He was a member of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits) for almost thirty years. Francis currently resides in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
