About the Online Book Club
Are you a person who regularly reads books and articles on spirituality and theology?
Is the religion and spirituality section of your bookstore a favorite place?
Do you often wish there was a way that you could share your insights about an author and hear what others think?
If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions, whether you are reading for professional development, a committed spiritual practice, or an ongoing hunger to know more about the spiritual life, the Online Book Club is for you!
The Online Book Club offers a setting to encounter an author’s ideas and participate in conversation with others about a selected text. In addition to providing an experienced facilitator to guide the conversation, we get you started by offering some direction to engage the author and the text. Then the conversation unfolds in light of the interests of those in the conversation circle.
