MAN SEEKS GOD by: Eric Weiner - nonfiction now available at the Genoa Library.
Eric Weiner, a non practicing Jew, went on a quest to find "his God"after an emergency room visit. His journey took him from Las Vegas to investigate the Railians, the world's largest UFO-based religion, to Israel to study Kabbalah to Nepal meditating with Tibetan lamas and China to unblock his chi and to Turkey where he learned to whirl like a dervish. In the end, Weiner found he was Jewish at heart but with a little Sufism, Taoism, Franciscan with a hedonistic streak thrown in. On his way to find God he also found himself.
I found this book to be a little slow at times but overall quite interesting. I enjoyed learning a little more about other religions. You may too!
