Being Both: Embracing Two Religions in One Interfaith Family chronicles the rise of a controversial new grassroots movement: interfaith families choosing to celebrate both religions. Clergy of every stripe continue to urge intermarried couples to raise children in one religion. However, growing up as an interfaith child celebrating only one religion, Miller became aware of both the benefits and the drawbacks of this strategy. After years living with the more complex religious identities in Africa and Brazil, Miller and her husband decided to raise their own children with both family religions.
