IRC Book Club's Newest Book Now Available for Purchase

The IRC Book Club takes a chapter a month and April starts a new book. They meet the second Monday of each month at 7PM. The IRC Book Club will be starting a new book this month.

Their next book, "Fields of Blood: Religion and the History of Violence," by Karen Armstrong, explores whether or not religion is indeed inherently violent. In an age in which “[i]n the West, the idea that religion is inherently violent is now taken for granted and seems self-evident,” Armstrong's book is a refreshingly level look at the role religion has played and continues to play in the world in regards to war and violence.

For a more in-depth review, please see the New York Times book review by James Fallows.

Come join in the discussion as we explore "Fields of Blood"'s first chapter April 13th at the Islamic Resource Center. Or, if you would rather, simply purchase the book through our bookstore and read it for yourself.
