What Is iPub Global Connections?

iPubCloud is the Internet home of iPub Global Connection and a place to encourage dialogue by hosting discussions on important issues facing today’s global community.

As you explore, you will discover that you can also search for and buy books for learning and having fun. This will be your global “home” where everyday thinkers can interact with writers and influencers on everything from religion to architecture, business ethics to agriculture, and most of all, global survival.  Browse our book selections and connect with us via social media.

It’s our vision that iPubCloud will be THE place to visit, read, and shop. Our first featured author, who sets the standard for the selection of future featured authors, is Dr. Leonard J. Swidler, Professor of Catholic Thought and Interreligious Dialogue at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.  Dr. Swidler began teaching at Temple in 1966, and in 1978, he founded the Dialogue Institute and co founded (with the late Arlene Swidler) the Journal of Ecumenical Studies. iPub Global Connection is honored to have Dr. Swidler as our Senior Consultant.

Dr. Leonard Swidler

iPubCloud Senior Advisor

Leonard Swidler is truly a citizen of the world whose empathy has reached friends and fellow thinkers in Europe, Asia, and Africa.

While others use religion as a barrier, Len sees it as a way to bring people together, even people from different religions. After all, the first religions emerged from peoples’ desire to understand the world around them.

Early thinkers such as Buddha, Jesus, Mohammad, Moses, and Krishna had a lot more in common than their followers may realize.  84,000 undergraduate and graduates students and 60+ years later, Len tirelessly continues to present his ideas on Dialogue every day.

Share Your Thoughts About Books And Contemporary Topics

We created iPub Global Connection to do more than sell books and other goods. We also want it to be a place where readers and thinkers can share their ideas in forums we’ll sponsor on this site. For example, everyone will agree that the 2016 U.S. Presidential election and primaries were like none other in history and we’ll be looking out for books (including probable best-sellers) to recommend to our readers. We hope that people who buy from us will post an opinion on the topics discussed in a forum and come back to read reactions and other comments. And of course, we invite readers to return to review the books they’ve read, even books they’ve already read. If it’s worth reading, it’s worth reviewing!
