This book isn’t just entertaining and fascinating. It’s inspiring and potentially life-changing. Here’s my own question: Can you be curious and thoughtful about religion and NOT read this book? My answer: No.” -A.J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically

“I’ve never seen a book quite like this: short, pithy answers to tough and important questions from a team of articulate, insightful thinkers. You’ve heard the expression ‘pooled ignorance’—but this is the opposite: pooled brilliance. Your own thinking will be deepened by interacting with these sharp minds.” -Brian McLaren, author of Why Did Jesus, Moses, the Buddha, and Mohammed Cross the Road?: Christian Identity in a Multi-Faith World

“These are some, not all, of the questions many are asking today. These are also some, not all, of the answers serious thinkers are proposing. What this book may do for you is provide an opportunity to ponder anew questions people are really asking.” -Scot McKnight, author of Blue Parakeet
