Christ Church book club 2018/2019 We will meet on the first Monday of each month at 8pm and the first Thursday at 2pm, venues to be agreed at a later date.
September- A month in the country- JL Carr (Penguin) – a gentle read for the summer hols with just over 100 pages, a classic with limited spiritual input but plenty to discuss.
October- Mans search for meaning- Viktor E Frankl (Rider)- just read this and found it an amazing and powerful book, no wonder over 9million copies sold!
November- Undivided: Coming out, becoming whole and living free from shame- Vicky Beeching (Harper one)
December- The Testament of Mary- Clom Toibin (Viking). A short novel which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. Hopefully a topical Christmas number.
January- The book of joy (Cornerstone)- The Dali Lama and Desmond Tutu in conversation continuing that theme we started with C S Lewis!
February-The power and the glory – Graham Greene (Vintage) another classic which raises plenty of questions.
March- (Lent book) The irresistible revolution- living as an ordinary radical- Shane Claiborne (Zonderman)
April- Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine – Gail Honeyman.
May – What is the Bible - Rob Bell (William Collins)- a book recommended as a clearer exposition than that that offered by AN Wilson or Jonathan Sachs!
June- We don’t do God - Carey and Carey (Monarch), The former Archibishop and his son ponder the problems faced by Christians in a secular society.
July- Honest to God- John A T Robinson- a book which created an uproar when published 55 years ago, does it still raise the hackles?
