Leap of Faith: Final Wrap Up September 25, 2006

Posted by Han in Leap of Faith by Queen Noor.

Okay this is it. Most of you should be done with the book now and that leaves us this week to wrap up discussion on the book. There seems to be a lot of dialog going on within the various chapter discussions so I think this week we can continue in those areas dialoging about what we think or noticed etc etc. I am going to post some general questions here but not too many because a lot of the main topics of the book are already being discussed in the chapter sections and I think we can just continue on there this week. (I am just going to edit down the questions so people can do a general wrap up)So feel free to jump in on those. No one is too late. I think most of us are going back and forth reading new comments and thoughts as they are posted on any of the chapters and adding our thoughts.

The following are the list of wrap up questions feel free to comment here.

1. Prior to reading Leap of Faith what was your perception of Jordan and the Middle East? Did reading this book change your opinion in any way? How is it different to get a personal rather than journalistic account?

2. What surprised you the most about Queen Noor?

3. With its obvious slant and anti American and anti Israeli remarks why do you think this book has become a best seller here in America?

4. What will you most remember from Leap of Faith?

Thought this site might be helpful in getting the other side. They have a lot of history of Israel and also peace treaties and terrorism. Anyhow lots of interesting infomation if you would like to dive a little further.

Just wanted to let you all know that there is a Leap of Faith by Queen Noor Category on the sidebar. You can click there and it will take you to all the posts on the Leap of Faith book. I will be doing that for all the books we read. Also I added the books we are reading to the top for easy access and will update the current book up there as it changes. For the getting to know you section I thought it would be fun to add some thumbnail pics so if you have a pic email it to me and I will add to that section. Thanks everyone for jumping in and joining the discussion. I know there were several who couldn’t do it this month…we look forward to hearing from you on the next book. Thanks…I am having fun hope you all are too.

While reading the book if anyone has a quote that really stands out to them email it to me or post it here and I will add to the sidebar. I know a few of our members are without internet connection this week due to vacation or computer problems…we can’t wait until you are able to add to our discussion. And those of you blurking we would love to hear your thoughts…I know in talking with many of you a lot of us are working through this book and at the same time trying to understand history etc. Also if anyone else has books or links that might be helpful in understanding what went on during this time that would be great too. I know Ashleigh has linked some in chapter 3-4 discussion that are worth checking out. Hope you all are enjoying this book…sorry to start out with such a heavy topic and harder read.  For those of you still in the first chapters it does pick up when she gets married.  😉
