I’m going to be starting an online theological book club!
I’m going to be choosing some books that may be a bit of a challenge for some but not so difficult that they would be overly frustrating. We’ll be reading the books and talking about them once per month to begin with.
I will start off each week by giving some background information, laying out various views and such, as a means of kicking off the dialogue. I do not plan to dominate the discussion nor do I plan to go into the discussions with an agenda as it relates to theology/doctrine etc. I do hope that this may eventually be the groundwork for a church plant but involvement in that vision is not necessary. In fact, we will almost assuredly have in attendance people from all over the country!
People can talk a little or a lot (within reason!) and should not be concerned about being called on to answer questions. Dialogue will be respectful and challenging. It may get messy but people will be asked to remain professional.
Attendees should expect a variety of views to be shared. The theme of diversity of thought will remain a core value.
We’ll have webinar and conference call capabilities. I may at some point offer two time slots for the same discussion topic to help facilitate differing schedules.
The webinars will be the first Thursday of every month at 8:00pm Central time.
I hope to bring in some guests occasionally (theologians, etc.) and welcome the opportunity to allow others to lead the discussion.
We welcome all attendees to invite friends to join and there is no pressure to be present at every event. People of all degrees of theological experience are welcome.
I hope to see you there!
If you’d like to stay informed, please join our main Facebook page here for announcements.
Our first book is an easy read but has some interesting ideas. We’ll be discussing Greg Boyd’s book Letters From A Skeptic. You can purchase the book here. Please let me know if you need monetary help with the cost of the book. Our hope is no one would miss out on the fun due to finances. (FYI – We will not always be reading books within my own theological preferences, but for a number of reasons I thought this book would be a nice place to start.)
