Authors Ranya Idliby, Suzanne Oliver, and Priscilla Warner offer us valuable insight on having interfaith discussions in their book The Faith Club.
These three women take us through their journey of spiritual reflection, leading to a friendship that bridges the gap between religions and ultimately inspires their profound journey in search of interfaith understanding and mutual respect. The Faith Club helps readers formulate meaningful conversations with people of similar or varying religious beliefs.
If you find open and honest dialogue appealing, and you’re interested in learning about other religions, this book is for you! Also, keep an eye out for interfaith events happening at Temple in the spring!
