Spring Session 2023

Marty and I looked at three books. Please take a look at them and choose one. Alternatively, pick a book you think will work for the next three months and offer it as a class book.

  1. Generous Justice by Tim Keller
  2. Tim Stagner introduced us to this book in 2020 during our reading of Amos, and we thought it might be helpful to go through it in some detail.

  3. The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism by Tim Keller
  4. This book can help a believer understand some of the subtleties of living in Christ in the modern age. It is not so much an apologetic as a plea for conversation in God without the comfort of absolutes. Keller is a great writer and each chapter is accessible and rich. There is plenty of fodder for the technical reader and artistically inclined.

  5. Do I Stay Christian: A Guide for the Doubters, the Disappointed, and the Disillusioned by Brian McLaren
  6. This book is new this year and has three sections. The first is the No answer, the second, Yes, and the third How. This book is both apologetic for Christ and Christianity and gives fair reason for Church critics. I don't suppose this will be an easy read, but it would be good for those who wish to have a conversation about Christ with insiders and outsiders.

Summer Session 2023

This season, we will be asking the class to provide meditations on the book of Psalms. This may be personal, devotional, literary, scientific, or any approach that you have found edifying. Please feel free to volunteer for as many weeks as you want. Let Marty or Doug know if there is a week that suits you.
