Alan Gratz’s books are a great addition to any library or home library. As someone who grew up in a very religious household, I was always extremely wary of the religious message these books were trying to convey. But, as a child, I loved the fact that Gratz was able to draw us inside and make the religious message come to life through the words and images he used.
In the same way that Alan Gratz’s books are a great addition to any library or home library, Alan Gratzs books are a great addition to our homes. Just like our own family, we don’t have to put our religious beliefs on the shelf to read. As a result, we can enjoy the same conversations or arguments, the same jokes, or the same songs in our new book club instead of fighting over who gets to read which book.
In a way, we were all on our own. The idea of a book club for the first time was new to us. The idea of a book club was foreign to us. But here we are, and we all feel like we’re part of a family, sharing our knowledge. And we’re here to get you all to know each other, too.
It is a little surprising how much this book club is about religion. For the first time in our lives, we were all talking about why we believe what we believe about God and our religion. For the first time in our lives, we were all talking about what it means to be Christians. And what it means to be atheists. And what it means to be agnostics. And what it means to be Buddhists. And what it means to be Mormons.
And what it means to be atheists. It’s kind of an odd topic, but it’s hard to ignore when you’re a kid who grew up with parents who believed in the same thing. As a kid who grew up with parents who believed in the same thing, we were all like, “It’s just a game,” but we grew up to be atheists, Buddhists, and Mormons.
All of this has to do with how the world is wired. The atheist movement that developed in the 1960s and 1970s was a backlash against the religious establishment. The world is wired in a way that we, as a society, will always be in a state of flux. So if we can figure out how to get our lives back in line with each other, perhaps we can do something about the fact that no one person is the one true god.
For atheists, religion is a way of figuring out who the one true god is. For Buddhists, it’s a way of finding the truth about our existence and figuring out why we are here. For Mormons, it’s a way of learning to be better stewards of the earth. For atheists, it’s a way of making sense of life. For Buddhists, it’s a way to try to live in harmony with every other religion.

This is an important idea to keep in mind, so let me tell you about my personal favorite. In my opinion, this is what the book bestows upon you: a little bit of knowledge and a little bit of wisdom.
What is it? It is a book that you can buy, read, and re-read in order. In other words, if you’ve read it you can go back and read it again and again. I mean, that’s not always a word you want to say, but I’m serious. A book that you can go back to and read and re-read is a book that is the most important thing you can own.
