This Month’s Book Club Selection

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 7:00 p.m. Library Board Room

God is Not One by Stephen Prothero

In God is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions That Run the World, religion scholar Stephen Prothero argues that persistent attempts to portray all religions as different paths to the same God overlook the distinct problem that each tradition seeks to solve. Delving into the different problems and solutions that Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism, Confucianism, Yoruba Religion, Daoism and Atheism strive to combat,God is Not One is an indispensable guide to the questions human beings have asked for millennia—and to the disparate paths we are taking to answer them today.

Join us for our next book club meeting on May 17 at 7:00pm in the Library Board Room. You can pick up a copy of the book at the Corvallis Library 2nd floor Reference Desk.
