Every several months, I crowdsource book recommendations from my friends and colleagues and share them here with my readers. The book selections are quite eclectic. Here are a few, and I'll post more recommendations in Part II tomorrow. Happy reading!

Greg Belinfanti, Partner, One Equity Partners; Board Member, Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC): The Tenth Parallel: Dispatches Between the Fault Line Between Christianity and Islam, by Eliza Griswold. The tenth parallel is the line of latitude 700 miles above the equator. Approximately 60% of the world's Christians and 50% of the world's Muslims live in this region where religious struggles seem to me engrained in society. It's a fascinating book which takes a look at these struggles from various perspectives: religious ideology, natural resource availability and control, local and national government control and policies, and U.S. foreign policy among others.
