“Of all the problems that exist in the world today, there is one so pervasive that it touches almost everyone in one way or another. It has been around since the dawn of humanity. Wars have been fought because of it. It is handed down from generation to generation. It manifests itself on both an individual and a societal level. This problem is, intolerance. Intolerance is the unyielding adherence to one’s opinions or prejudices, regardless of how damaging they may be. Tolerance, on the other hand, is the act of acceptance—the measure of a person’s ability to effectively deal with difficulty.  The question is, do we want to live life full of happiness or hostility? Our society is filled with intolerance against minorities, LGBT individuals, illegal immigrants, and others. For example, Blacks have been disenfranchised and underprivileged throughout history, including the present. They are often unfairly targeted by law enforcement. Are we going to merely accept such practices or challenge them and become better citizens as a result? There is no room for complacency in this regard. We cannot rest on our laurels and take for granted accomplishments made by previous generations. We conquered many forms of prejudice following the Civil War and the civil rights movement, but our work is not done. Ultimately, we need to ask ourselves, “Does there need to be more or less tolerance in God’s universe?” The only rational and humane answer to that question is, “more.”

“…a perfect book to calm readers during these turbulent times. Spirituality in the 21st Century is a wide-ranging book which addresses spiritual and personal issues. From success in jobs to relationships, Daversa advises readers to take a spiritual path. He also writes about how a foundation in God, an open heart, and even love of nature can help people heal their emotional wounds.”



“Daversa’s look at twenty-first-century spirituality is a deeply personal account of what he has gleaned from years as a truth-seeker. The work offers an outline of his belief system and outlines how one can utilize the book to seek a more spiritual life…. Written with the obvious desire to enhance the lives of others, this work is informative and thought-provoking.”



“…undoubtedly recommend this book to readers who need the motivation to carry on with everyday life, as well as those determined to develop an intimate relationship with God.”



“This is by far one of the most open to discussion books I’ve read…centered around the 21st century…included the Black and LGBTQ+ community…. Spirituality in the 21st Century is thought-provoking and intellectually invigorating.”
