One School ∙ One Book

One School ∙ One Book is a program sponsored by the RTS Orlando Library that seeks to generate discussion and cultivate greater community life through corporate reflection on a book of mutual interest and benefit. Each fall, the library staff choose a thought-provoking book, encouraging the entire RTS community, as well as others in Orlando, to read and discuss the book. The program culminates with a "meet the author" event.

2012 Book Selection:
The Crescent Through the Eyes of the Cross by Dr. Nabeel Jabbour

Dr. Nabeel Jabbour is the author of seven books on the topic of Islam, and he is an adjunct professor at several seminaries. In his latest book, The Crescent Through the Eyes of the Cross, Dr. Jabbour addresses issues concerning the worldview of Muslims in order to help Christians develop a fuller understanding of Islam, moving them beyond mere tolerance to a passion for Muslims that is sensitive to Islamic culture.
