Dana Trent

Saffron Cross: The Unlikely Story of How a Christian Minister Married a Hindu Monk is the intriguing memoir of the relationship between Dana Trent, a Baptist minister, and Fred, a devout Hindu and former monk.

Saffron Cross includes chapters on Dana and Fred's honeymoon at an ashram in India, their individual spiritual journeys, Sabbath keeping, vegetarianism, grief, community, and more. You will sense what an adventure their East-meets-West partnership has been, and you'll also see how much Fred's commitment to his faith has enhanced Dana's Christian growth.  Dana Trent Will be in the store to read, discuss, and sign books.
