A groundbreaking book about Americans searching for faith and mutual respect, The Faith Club weaves the story of three women, their three religions, and their urgent quest to understand one another.After September 11, Ranya Idliby, an American Muslim of Palestinian descent, faced constant questions about Islam, God, and death from her children, the only Muslims in their classrooms. Inspired by a story about Muhammad, Ranya reached out to two other mothers to write an interfaith children's book that would highlight the connections between Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. After just a few meetings, however, the women realized that they themselves needed an honest and open environment where they could admit-and discuss-their concerns, stereotypes, and misunderstandings. After hours of soul-searching about the issues that divided them, Ranya, Suzanne, and Priscilla grew close enough to discover and explore what united them.A memoir of spiritual reflections in three voices, The Faith Club has spawned interfaith discussion groups in churches, temples, mosques, and other community settings. It will make you feel as if you are eavesdropping on the authors' private thoughts, provocative discussions, and often-controversial opinions and conclusions.As the authors reveal their deepest beliefs, you watch the blossoming of a profound interfaith friendship and the birth of a new way of relating to others. Pioneering, timely, deeply thoughtful, and full of hope, The Faith Club's caring message will resonate with people of all faiths. Download and start listening now!

    " Reading this book caused me to examine my own faith in more detail. None of these women were certain of their beliefs and that was disappointing to me. I learned a great deal about the Jewish and Muslim faiths. We can learn much from each other. "

    " Interesting but I felt the authors seemed not to be well versed in their respective religions they were discussing. A good try at bringing different religions to start a dialogue "

    " I really enjoy the frankness of their discussions and that there isn't much sugar coating when they disagree. But like all good friendships, they respect each other enough to go the distance when they do have conflicts or differences in opinions. "
