The beautiful religious symbols of the original design by Dr. Steve McSwain have been attractive to thousands of people who share his vision of world peace, where humans respect, even value, the diversity of any and all spiritual traditions.
Surprised by this widespread interest in the unity pendant and the religious symbols, Dr. McSwain secured a manufacturing company to produce the beautiful stainless steel religious symbol.
Today, just a few years after the first pendants were produced, this religious symbol has been shipped to nearly every continent on planet earth.
This original design is available for purchase in Stainless Steel and Sterling Silver. In addition to wearing this oneness symbol to promote peace and unity among all spiritual traditions, it makes a great gift, too. A standard size chain comes with each pendant.
Orders for this religious symbol are processed quickly (usually the same day) and shipped the same day, too. The primary difference between this religious symbol (or, pendant) and the later version I designed is that this one has the symbol of the Christian Cross in the middle. The later version has the word “PEACE” in the middle. In all versions, however, various religious symbols of some of the major religions of the world are distributed evenly around the edges.
While there are many religious symbols which I might have chosen, I selected these specific symbols because they represent the largest and most widely known of the world’s faith traditions. The point and purpose of this religious pendant, however, is the same regardless of the religious symbols in each design. The pendant was designed to promote a more conscious, compassionate, and charitable world.
In that respect, therefore, this religious symbol, as well as the religious images within it, are representative of the larger need facing the world today – the need for compassion and peace. As the Dalai Lama has so rightly said, “When there is peace among the religions, there will be peace in the world.”
Thank you for wearing this religious pendant (image) and sharing in the promotion of peace.**
NOTE: Chain IS included**
Below is a lengthy but comprehensive description of each symbol.
These religious symbols on the Interfaith Unity Pendant are worn to promote peace, harmony, and the oneness of all spiritual traditions. Each tradition is valid and holds special significance to its followers. Yet, each tradition must respect, value, and so make room for all other traditions. In the end, all spiritual traditions provide Light and Truth to the world and seek to hold sacred the Mystery of Life. “Where there’s peace among religions, there will be peace in the world” (Dalai Lama).

INTERFAITH CROSS PENDANT is free with the purchase of The Enoch Factor.
The Enoch Factor was named one of two FINALISTS (2011) for “Most Inspirational Book of the Year” by the IndieBook Awards at the Global Book Expo in NYC (May, 2011).
In this award-winning book, Dr. Steve McSwain calls for a new kind of spirituality — one that truly connects people to God and to each other, regardless of race, nationality, or beliefs. As an Ambassador to the Council on the Parliament for World Religions, Steve believes, as does the Catholic theologian, Hans Kung, “When there is peace among religions, there will be peace in the world.”
“The survival of humanity is at stake,” writes McSwain. “Virtually every conflict — between nations, religions, even between people within the same religion — has been the inevitable consequence of the narcissistic notion in practically every religion that assumes, ‘We’re right; You’re wrong!’ ‘We’re in; You’re out!’ ‘We’re the chosen ones; You’re not!’ Such insanity must end if humanity is to survive!”
The Enoch Factor (the Interfaith Cross Pendant is free with the purchase of the book)
The Enoch Factor is a disarmingly candid memoir on how misdirected religion has become, including Christianity. It calls for an end to religious dogmatism and fundamentalism and the consequential crisis of faith that is driving millions to question lifelong beliefs, to change religions, or to abandon faith altogether. (the Interfaith Cross Pendant is the popular pendant with the Christian Cross in the middle and the religious symbols surrounding it).
More than a personal odyssey, The Enoch Factor: The Sacred Art of Knowing God (which can also be purchased on Amazon in paperback and audible and electronic versions at Amazon and Barnes & Noble in paperback only – but the pendant is available only by purchasing from my website) is a testament to the possibility of a spiritual awakening, one that genuinely transforms the human condition. With fresh insights into the teachings of Jesus, the Buddha, Lao Tzu, Muhammad, and contemporary New Age thought, Dr. McSwain shows readers how to experience a spirituality beyond the distinctions and differences that have divided people and religions for eons. It is in The Enoch Factor that readers discover what the author describes as “the sacred art of knowing God.”
Remember, the special offer is the INTERFAITH CROSS PENDANT – it is free with the book purchase.

The Giving Myths: Giving, then Getting the Life You’ve Always Wanted ($16.49) (Add $3 for S&H in US)
The Giving Myths
There are many giving myths and Steve addresses them in The Giving Myths.
The first of the giving myths, and the one that is likely the most broadly shared, is the myth of the American Dream. Which, accurately understood, goes something like this: “Get all you can, Save all you can, Achieve all you can.” And, if you do, the reward is, you’ll be happy, healthy and spend your blissful retirement years in peace and tranquility.
There is only problem with this popular and often repeated notion: It’s a myth. The life you really want is a gift itself. You receive it and, as you do, you give it away. You cannot give what you do not possess. But what you possess and do give away, you get to keep and enjoy. The life you want isn’t achieved; it is received. The life you want isn’t kept; it’s given away. What Jesus said about giving is a complete reversal of expectations.
What people really want is found not in getting but giving. Generous giving in life and living is the key to finding and living the life you’ve always wanted.
The American Dream, however, is not only a myth as it is typically understood but there are many other myths about giving…about living a life a generosity. Steve addresses several of these giving myths throughout the book. Read the rest of this entry »
