The Faith Between Us

Afaith This month Bloomsbury USA releases the rare and fascinating The Faith Between Us: A Jew and a Catholic Search For the Meaning of God. The book is written by Peter Bebergal and Scott Korb, who separately have written nonfiction for the Boston Globe, Salon, the Believer, and Harper's, among others. The Faith Between Us collects Berbegal and Korb's dialogues about their belief in God--a series of essays that ranges from the funny to the haunting, and represents a refreshingly moderate, non-dogmatic view of religion in America. As Publishers Weekly wrote in its starred review, "Like a conversation that continues all night and into the early light of dawn, this collection of stories is filled with the deepest of personal feelings and confessions." Whether you're religious or not, this book about friendship, respect for different points of view, and spirituality in the modern world is captivating and necessary reading. I highly recommend it. --Jeff
