Great Books and God, April 28

April 28, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Planting Seeds of the Word in April

Since the first century, Christians have detected “seeds of the Word” in the surrounding culture.  No matter how charred or distorted the fragments, we can always uncover inklings of the Gospel, which can then lead people to God.

Through this evocative collection of essays, Father Robert Barron finds those “seeds” in today’s most popular films, books, and current events.  How do Superman, Gran Torino, and The Hobbit illuminate the figure of Jesus?  How does Bob Dylan convey the prophetic overtones of Jeremiah and Isaiah?  Where can we detect the ripple of original sin in politics, sports, and the Internet culture?  Finding the “seeds of the Word” requires a new vision.  This book will train you to see.

Great Books and God is an “open enrollment” book club.  Members choose the books we read and can join at any time.  If you have questions, contact Dean at deanvaeth@comcast.net or just drop in on Tuesday, April 28th in the Parish Center at 6:30pm for discussion and light snacks.  Read the book.  Bring a friend.
