Upcoming Meetings: January 7 & 21, 2019 @ 8pm
We just finished our first study of the new school year based on the Gospel of John. It was a wonderful study with a great learning and conversations.
As a group we selected our next study: The Reason for God by Timothy Keller. We will begin the study at our October 29 meeting. Some of the topics discussed in the book are the following:
Why does God allow suffering in the world?
How could a loving God send people to Hell?
Why isn’t Christianity more inclusive?
How can one religion be “right” and the others “wrong”?
Why have so many wars been fought in the name of God?
You may learn more about or purchase The Reason for God here.
A New York Times bestseller people can believe in—by "a pioneer of the new urban Christians" (Christianity Today) and the "C.S. Lewis for the 21st century" (Newsweek).
Timothy Keller, the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, addresses the frequent doubts that skeptics, and even ardent believers, have about religion. Using literature, philosophy, real-life conversations, and potent reasoning, Keller explains how the belief in a Christian God is, in fact, a sound and rational one. To true believers he offers a solid platform on which to stand their ground against the backlash to religion created by the Age of Skepticism. And to skeptics, atheists, and agnostics, he provides a challenging argument for pursuing the reason for God.
As always, we welcome anyone anytime even if you did or did not read the chapter or can't make many of the meetings.
