Our book for this study...
For this study, we will be using the book “What Do Our Neighbors Believe?“ by Greenstein, Hotz, and Kaltner. This paperback is a review of Judaism, Christianity and Islam; it is written by scholars from each faith and is easy to read and understand. The Jewish scholar is Rabbi Micah Greenstein from Memphis Temple Israel. The book is available through Barnes and Nobleand Amazon.
Please read the first three chapters prior to our first meeting on September 7th.
Some discussion questions to ponder as we complete our readings for each week:
What did you learn that was totally new about Jews/Muslims/Christians?
How much is common to our faiths? How much is different? What surprised you?
What preconceived notions did you have about the topics covered in these chapters? These could be myths or urban legends perpetuated by books, TV, movies, or other sources. Has your thinking changed?
Has your thinking changed about Jewish/Muslim/Christian interfaith interactions and/or the current political dialogue?
