The book club pick for next month is actually a book I’ve read before (what seems like forever ago) and one that I’ve decided I want to re-read as we enter into fall…
For September, we’ll be reading Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. From Amazon.com…
“In 1943 Great Britain, when hope and the moral fabric of society were threatened by the relentless inhumanity of global war, an Oxford don was invited to give a series of radio lectures addressing the central issues of Christianity. Over half a century after the original lectures, the topic retains it urgency. Expanded into book form, Mere Christianity never flinches as it sets out a rational basis for Christianity and builds an edifice of compassionate morality atop this foundation. As Mr. Lewis clearly demonstrates, Christianity is not a religion of flitting angels and blind faith, but of free will, an innate sense of justice and the grace of God.”
Regardless of where you are on your personal faith journey, this book is a worthy read and definitely one that will keep you thinking, pondering, asking and seeking. This is the kind of book you’ll want to read with a journal nearby and a hot cup of tea in hand.
