Abraham: A Journey to the Heart of Three Faiths by Bruce Feiler will be the topic of discussion for November. Both immediate and timeless, Abraham tells the powerful story of one man's search for the shared ancestor of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Traveling through war zones, braving violence at religious sites, and seeking out faith leaders, Bruce Feiler uncovers the defining, yet, divisive role that Abraham plays for half the world's believers.

Our discussion in December is about When Atheism Becomes Religion: America’s New Fundamentalists by Chris Hedges. This book explores the new atheists; those who attack religion to advance the worst of global capitalism, intolerance and imperial projects.
