“In this polarised world the ever increasing gap between rich and poor nations is a scandal that reflects upon us all. Jubilee Debt is addressing one of the most urgent issues of our time and deserves our support”.

She is the author of 12 books on comparative religion including: A History of God:  the 4,000 year quest of Judaism, Christianity and Islam; Muhammad, a biography of the prophet; Buddha; and The Case for God. In 2008 she was award the TED prize of $100,000 and devoted it to the in auguration of a Charter for Compassion; signatories include the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Queen Noor of Jordan. The Charter is based on the spirit of the Golden Rule (to treat others as one would like to be treated oneself) which is at the heart of the great religious traditions and intended to foster global understanding and a peaceful world.
