“The good Education of Youth has been esteemed by wise Men in all Ages, as the surest Foundation of the Happiness both of private Families and of Common-wealths. Almost all Governments have therefore made it a principal Object of their Attention, to establish and endow with proper Revenues, such Seminaries of Learning, as might supply the succeeding Age with Men qualified to serve the Publick with Honour to themselves, and to their Country. ”

~Benjamin Franklin, Proposals Relating to the Education of Youth in Pennsylvania, 1749

“Give up money, give up fame, give up science, give the earth itself and all it contains rather than do an immoral act. And never suppose that in any possible situation, or under any circumstances, it is best for you to do a dishonorable thing, however slightly so it may appear to you… From the practice of the purest virtue, you may be assured you will derive the most sublime comforts in every moment of life, and in the moment of death.”

Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, August 19, 1785

Bruce Feiler: A Journey to the Heart of Three Faiths 

 

Bruce Feiler 

“…Bruce Feiler (born October 25, 1964) is a popular American writer on faith, family, and finding meaning in everyday life. He is the best-selling author of nine books, including Walking the Bible, Abraham, and America’s Prophet, and one of only a handful of writers to have four consecutive New York Times nonfiction best-sellers in the last decade. He is also the writer/presenter of the PBS miniseries Walking the Bible.[1]

His latest book, The Council of Dads: My Daughters, My Illness, and the Men Who Could Be Me, describes how he responded to a diagnosis of cancer by asking six men from all passages of his life to be present through the passages of his young daughters’ lives.

Feiler is credited with formulating the Feiler Faster Thesis[2]: the increasing pace of society and journalists’ ability to report it is matched by the public’s desire for more information.

He has written for numerous publications including The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, and Gourmet magazine[3], where he won three James Beard Awards.[4] He is also a frequent contributor to National Public Radio, CNN, and Fox News. Feiler was the guest on the November 2, 2005 episode of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report.[5]

A native of Savannah, Georgia, Feiler lives in New York with his wife, Linda Rottenberg, and their twin daughters. Rottenberg, who frequently appears in his books, is co-founder and CEO of Endeavor, a nonprofit that supports High-Impact Entrepreneurs.

Feiler completed his undergraduate degree at Yale University where he was a member of Ezra Stiles College, before spending time teaching English in Japan as part of the JET Program. This experience led to his first book, Learning to Bow: Inside the Heart of Japan, a popular portrait of life in a small Japanese town. Upon his return he earned a masters degree in international relations from the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, which he chronicled in his book Looking for Class. …”
