One Destination by author Brett Strobridge takes a look at religion from many different viewpoints, and encourages readers to understand that religions, while different, share many positive commonalities. Included in One Destination are passages, quotes, and highlights from many different religious books and backgrounds. One Destination begins with an introduction explaining that by digging deeper into religious tradition, we begin to see similar concepts and spiritual teachings. Then, the book sections off teachings and quotes by themes such as Self-Control, Generosity, Inner Peace, Divine Will, and Love, Unity, and Connection. There are many more categories as well, so the reader will get an overview of each of these themes as viewed from different religions.

In One Destination, quotes are taken from the Bible, the Qur’an, Tao Te Ching, The Rig Veda (Hindu), and Buddha. Author Brett Strobridge gives the reader a theme, then provides a passage from each religious book and teaching. This serves to not only guide the reader with different or perhaps difficult topics, but also offers the understanding that each religion has similar positive passages on the topic. For example, under Humility, the reader gets the passage: “The humble is the stem upon which the might grows” from Tao Te Ching. They get a similar passage from the Bible, so they can read the similar teaching or concept. This is an interesting and unique way to merge the religious teachings, and I truly enjoyed reading each passage and theme. I recommend the book to anyone interested in religious passages, different religious teachings, or those looking for guidance and positivity.
