Join interfaith commentator Eboo Patel as he explores what it means to be "literate" about other faiths, how interfaith cooperation works and why, the skills needed for interfaith cooperation and the significant role that our institutions, including colleges and faith communities, can play in this process. Embracing Interfaith Cooperation: Eboo Patel on Coming Together to Change the World - Participant's Guide includes the following five sessions: Interfaith Cooperation in American History, Interfaith Literacy, The Science of Interfaith Cooperation, The Art of Interfaith Leadership, and The Role of Colleges, Seminaries and Houses of Worship.

Each of the "Embracing" units begins with a five DVD session video, a 10-15 minute presentation by Tim Scorer followed by filmed interaction with a diverse small group of adults. The Participant's Workbook then helps your own local small group "join the conversation." It includes all study materials need by participants and those who lead. Each participant will need one copy. The Embracing Series is ideal for adult and young-adult small groups, Christian educators, clergy, chaplains and campus ministries.

Eboo Patel grew up in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, where he attended Glenbard South High School. He attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for his undergraduate studies and earned a degree in Sociology. He has a doctorate in the sociology of religion from Oxford University, where he studied on a Rhodes scholarship. While a student at Oxford, Patel ran numerous interfaith youth projects in India, Sri Lanka, and South Africa. He officially founded IFYC in 2002 with a Jewish friend and a $35,000 grant from the Ford Foundation. Patel and IFYC partnered with White House Officials in developing President Obama's Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge, which invited schools across the nation to make interfaith cooperation a campus priority and launched in 2011. His second book, Sacred Ground: Pluralism, Prejudice, and the Promise of America, was released in August 2012.
