Albright grew up thinking God had no role in foreign policy; experience taught the former Secretary of State otherwise. In this meditation on how faith shapes world events, she explores Islam's roots, predicts that the U.S. invasion of Iraq may rank "among the worst foreign policy disasters" in our history and urges America to tread lightly: "We had better find a way to start putting old fires out instead of lighting new ones." An engrossing, important read.
