God of Love is a unique contribution to the literature of religious and spiritual unity. And God knows, we need that message more than ever. In a time of division between people, this book–which is a masterful blend of research, storytelling, poetry, and memoir–is like a sacred magnet, pulling on the spiritual heart of all seekers. Before you know it, only a few pages into the book, you’re magnetized to the blessed center of Truth.

The Ark Bookstore always enjoys Mirabai Starr’s book signing appearances and talks, not only because of her professionalism and gifted speaking ability, but also, (and primarily), because Mirabai’s presence is a manifestation and transmission of her very deep understanding of the spiritual teachings she translates.

Mirabai Starr puts the pieces together like no other contemporary mystic. Reading her books is more than an intellectual experience—it’s as though her outstretched hand reaches through the pages, inviting you—no compelling you—to join the divine dance.

I was deeply touched by the way Mirabai wove the three religions into one story, that is really a story for each of us. God of Love is the love story at the heart of world’s great monotheistic religions, and the mystics and poets who have given voice to this unfolding of divine love. Allow this book to speak to your soul, to nourish your heart, to draw you deeper towards love.

Mirabai Starr writes of the divine from a luminous gene inherited by only a few. We hear The True Song in each word she attributes to the holy. It is more than just her song; it is the Melody of the Spheres translated by an astute musician. We are always touched by the genuine in her call to the reader to love and love well, to see with the sacred eye of beauty.

God of Love a rich and deeply touching experience spiritual travelers. The book sparkles with illuminating stories of Western contemplatives from various backgrounds. Mirabai opens the hearts of readers a marvelous offering from what Sufis call: “The One, the perfection of love, harmony and beauty.” This sums up a wonderful and “perfect” book. Highly recommended.

Author of God is a Verb 

This book brilliantly reminds us that in the heart of the Abrahamic traditions there burns a singular divine flame.

Mirabai Starr takes us out dancing with the One. God of Love is a confluence of the currents of Judaism, Islam and Christianity all emptying into the great ocean of Love. She shows us how she brings that nectar into her own life.

Author of Be Here Now 

It is with great pleasure and delight that I endorse the work of Mirabai Starr, who I find to be a soul companion as well as a professional colleague.  In addition to be a gifted author, Mirabai is blessed with the capacity to inspire others with her wisdom and understanding of mystical theology.  I referred to her translations of Teresa of Avila’s great masterpiece, THE INTERIOR CASTLE, while writing my own book, ENTERING THE CASTLE, because of the excellence of her work. Mirabai is a rare jewel.

Author of Anatomy of the Spirit and Entering the Castle 

You have not only touched my heart, but both your writings and your voice have connected me more with myself. This has allowed me to bring forth more fully what I see as my holy idea. My copy of The God of Love is truly loved and written in almost as if we were having a personal dialogue. Your writings have given me both clarity and courage. You are indeed a credible witness, opening our hearts and minds to our true desires personally guiding and inviting us to sing our own special love song to the God of Love, even if it starts with a single note.


The grace and beauty of Mirabai's work has become a cornerstone of my path into the Mystery. My first experience of her writing was the "God of Love" which quite literally cracked me open and engendered a new relationship to the Christianity in which I was raised. Her other literary works and translations of the saints have been equally compelling and her ongoing work in "interspirituality" is creating real change in our world. Spending time with her in person was a deep honor and a wonderful treat and I look forward to further opportunities to share our passion for the planet and our spiritual Oneness.
