"Scott Korb and Peter Bebergal, two young progressives, share a secret: They believe in God. One is a former wannabe Catholic priest, the other a failed Jewish mystic, and they formed a friendship that's shaped by their common belief" "In The Faith Between Us, they engage in a dialogue that ranges widely; from the mundane to the divine. They discuss finding religious meaning in their secular worlds, the moral implications of decisions both personal and political, their different religious cultures, and how their lives have been shaped by the pursuit of an authentic, livable faith. Both a spiritual memoir and an examination of contemporary religion as it's played out in unconventional ways, The Faith Between Us offers an alternative vision of faith in America, one that is equally irreverent and devout, ironic and earnest." "For everyone interested in a modern take on keeping faith - and in reclaiming religion from the fundamentalists and literalists who have co-opted it for the right and from those on the left who dismiss its redemptive power."--BOOK JACKET.
