Andrew Harvey is an internationally renowned religious scholar, writer and teacher, and the author of more than 40 books, including the critically acclaimed The Hope; Son of Man, and Savage Grace with Carolyn Baker. Born in south India in 1952, Harvey has devoted much of his life to studying the world's mystical traditions, including intensive study of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Sufi mysticism.

Mark Siljander is a former U.S. Congressman and UN Ambassador. As a man of faith, his unorthodox approach to international engagement is underpinned with several sciences, including comparative Semitic linguistics. This groundbreaking research has uncovered common ground, particularly among the Abrahamic faiths, including dogmas that were heretofore thought irreconcilable. Relevant scholars have affirmed Mark’s research as recounted in his best-selling and award-winning book, A Deadly Misunderstanding; A Congressman’s Quest to Bridge the Muslim-Christian Divide. This research has been put into action, contributing to the end of seven conflicts in Africa, including the Darfur genocide.
