Current Selection (Meeting: July 5, 2018, 6:30 pm at the Kohlers’ home): Cry, the Beloved Country, by Alan Paton

First meeting: The Screwtape Letters (May 31, 2018)

Beginning in May 2018, we are running a church book club for the first time in a few years. We will be reading mostly fiction, along with some non-fiction (including classic works of Christian writing). Our first book is The Screwtape Letters, C.S. Lewis’ imaginative epistolary novel of a “senior devil” named Screwtape writing to a “junior devil,” his nephew Wormwood, to teach him the ways that he can best keep their “Patient” out of the clutches of the “Enemy” (God). This is not really a book about demons at all, but rather Lewis’ wise (and funny) reflections on the excesses that can snare Christians and keep them from the full riches of what God has given in Christ.

 

Plans for future books include Confessions, Augustine’s famous spiritual autobiography, and a selection of short stories and letters by Flannery O’Connor.
