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.

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.  😉

Okay here is the spot you can start discussing your thoughts on the first 2 chapters here!!! What do you think so far? What are your likes and dislikes? I am going to leave my comments to the comment section. Obviously this book we won’t be spoiling too much of a plot but I want to get into practice. On the last week we will be discussing in full and I will put questions and comments on the main post. Fire away. I was going to schedule these to post early in the morning but I have been getting emails from all you early readers.  😉  (I am included in that group)  So due to the holiday weekend and everyone itching to start discussing the book.  Here you go.  Merry Christmas a day early.  HEE HEE.

Hope you all have your first book and are ready to start.  I know a few of you have already started reading.  😉

Just want to let you all know as you begin the book that I am sure there will be some that don’t agree with everything written in the book etc etc.  This is my first time reading the book but part of the reason I chose this particular book was to have a better WORLD view.  To understand how someone submersed in another culture and religion different from my own views the world politics and history.  I think this book will be very interesting in light of our current events.  I think it will give us a better understanding of what others believe and why and hopefully make us a better person in the process.  So I hope you enjoy.  On September 1st I will go ahead and put a post up for the first few chapters and you all can start sharing and interacting there as soon as you have read a little.
