Lenten Book discussion: C.S. Lewis classic, “The Great Divorce.”

The next book will be the C.S. Lewis classic, “The Great Divorce.”   Mrs. Michelle Shafer will lead this discussion.  The dates for this book discussion are:
~February 23, 2021, 7-8 pm
~March 2, 9 & 16, 2021, 7-8 pm


The book is available on Amazon“C.S. Lewis’ The Great Divorce is a classic Christian allegorical tale about a bus ride from hell to heaven. An extraordinary meditation upon good and evil, grace and judgment, Lewis’s revolutionary idea in the The Great Divorce is that the gates of Hell are locked from the inside. Using his extraordinary descriptive powers, Lewis’ The Great Divorce will change the way we think about good and evil. “

Book discussion #3:  “5 Great Catholic Ideas” by Fr. Edward William Clark

Our second book will be “5 Great Catholic Ideas” by Fr. Edward William Clark. Dr. Catherine Sims will lead this book discussion.
It is available on Amazon“This book is an exploration of several foundational principles of Catholic doctrine presented on a level accessible to a broad range of readers. It is rooted in the conviction that today many people who are neither professional theologians nor ministerial students share an interest in the work of theology.”
