Reviewing Faith...and 'The Faith Club'
By Shelf Love on September 18, 2012
While reviewing the three-sided book on religious perspectives, The Faith Club, a blogger reflects on her own Christian faith and the sources of her beliefs:
"The question should have been simple, but when Ranya Idliby’s daughter came home from school and asked, 'Do we celebrate Hanukkah or Christmas?' Ranya wasn’t sure how to answer. Ranya is a Muslim and was proud of her heritage, despite not being a regular worshiper at a mosque at the time. 'How could I give my daughter an intelligent, clear answer that she could confidently deliver to other kindergartners?' she wondered. With a little study, she soon learned of the close connections between Islam, Judaism, and Christianity and decided that she’d like write a children’s book to share those connections. But first, she needed to find a Christian and a Jewish mother to collaborate with. She soon connected with Suzanne Oliver, a Christian, and Priscilla Warner, a Jew, and they started talking."
