No God But God by Reza Aslan

Aslan is one of the smartest religious scholars out there. This book reads as both a study of Islam and a commentary forces impacting religion in the modern world (he is especially adroit about extremism and orthodoxy). His perspective will make you fall in love with the beauty of the world’s second-largest religion and think deeply about how we navigate faith in the 21st century. - Clara

Why Religion? by Elaine Pagels

For years, I was obsessed with the Nag Hammadi Library, or Gnostic Gospels, and Princeton’s professor of religion Elaine Pagels is by far the leading authority on the subject. In this memoir, Pagels retells the story of her life and examines the questions she faced her entire career, from others and herself: How can an academic believe in religion, and what place does religion have in the modern world? - Aric

Unsavory Truth by Marion Nestle

Is chocolate heart-healthy? Does yogurt prevent type 2 diabetes? Do pomegranates help cheat death? News headlines bombard us with such amazing claims. They are reported as science and have dramatic effects on what we eat. In her new book, food expert Marion Nestle (Food Politics, What to Eat), explains how these studies are more about marketing than science, why it’s time to put public health first, and what we can do to make that happen. “Marion Nestle is a national treasure. She has the courage to take on multinational corporations and the wisdom to separate the facts from the spin.” ―—Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation
