    everyone to read in the area of religion/ethics? Please refrain from answering with the Holy Book of your personal religion.

    "Through the Vally of the Kwai" Earnest Gordon. True story by a survivor of a Japanese POW camp. It's an excellent book on understanding faith.

    Douglas Adams wrote the "Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series and that's what the dolphins all said during their exodus just moments before the Earth was destroyed. I haven't read that book yet, but that outta give you an idea.

    Oh, and my book is "The Screwtape Letters." by C.S. Lewis.

    Yes, the "Hitchiker's Guide". Haven't read it either. What's your pick about?

    The Screwtape Letters is supposed to be a series of letters written to a rising demon by an experienced one about how to tempt people.
