Man Seeks God by Eric Weiner

Tonight was our book club discussion of "Man Seeks God," by Eric Weiner. You may recognize his name from NPR. He was a correspondent for years.

I loved his previous book, "Geography of Bliss." He has such an amazing way of using language.

This book is also wonderful - so well-written you just want to keep reading long after you've finished. He's funny, which is ironic, because his battle with depression is a secondary character in all his work.

In this book he travels to different places to explore various religions after he ends up in the ER and a nurse asks him, "Have you found your God." His ER visit turned out to be a "brush with gas," instead of a heart issue. Nonetheless, that question sent him on a journey spanning continents to find his God.

He explores a multitude of faiths, and devotes a chapter to each. I found something interesting about each. I love to see into other people's brains.
