Diversity is the highlight of Susan Field’s life. Having lived and worked in the Lower East Side of Manhattan for more than 25 years, she has worshipped with a diverse group of people. It is this love for diversity, and seeing it as a picture of what heaven will be like, that inspired her to write. She, and her husband, Taylor, helped the ministry site, Graffiti, become a church which now ministers to more than 10,000 people a year and has assisted in some way with starting more than 30 new churches. She has ministered to hundreds of college students through her affiliations with Columbia University United Campus Ministries and New York University Chaplains’ Circle. She has two married children, both working in ministry in New York City.
