    1. (Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography [cclapcenter]. I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP; it is not being reprinted here illegally.)As I've mentioned here before, one of the topics I find myself becoming more and more interested in these days is that of American religious thought, despite I myself being a long-time atheist with no plans to change my beliefs anytime soon; and that's because, with religious beliefs playing such a hugely [...]

    2. I cannot give an unbiased review of this book, nor comment objectively on the writing style of the clarity of ideas. For me, it was far too personal of a read. Although neither of the two authors believes quite what I do (my faith is more literal than Scott's and more disciplined than Peter's) their struggles, their embarrassment, doubt, exhilaration, and yearning are incredibly familiar. This is a book of how religious faith (both discovery and loss of it) shaped two individuals. It is also a s [...]

    3. I am not overly religious and consider myself agnostic, so I was surprised as anyone when I picked out this book at the library. Sometimes I feel like book titles just jump out at me and I am meant to take them home. I am however very interested in memoir and very interested in cross-cultural understanding.It's one of the most innovative memoirs in that two authors contributed to the book, each alternating chapters, while the second author provided an epilogue to each chapter. It's basically abo [...]

    4. I've had four books on my bedstand that I was alternating between for the past three months, and this is the one that I finished first, so that must be saying something. It is quite topical, and easy to read, and there is a subtle narrative to a book that is, in essence, a dialogue between two friends, one Catholic and one Jewish, that takes the form of a series of essays on their personal faiths. It is an intimate story of two people, both near my age, and both of whom have both spent most of t [...]

    5. For a book that is meant to be read objectively, I think, I enjoyed this volume as a pair of interesting memoirs.

    6. I really wanted to like this book and it WAS interesting. But I was not captivated; in the end, I skimmed some of the chapters before returning it to the library by the due date!
