Good Reading for Good Friday
“Good Friday cannot be confined to Holy Week. It is not the dismal but necessary prelude to the joy of Easter…”
Join Great Books and God at 6:30pm on Tuesday, March 24th when we meet to discuss Death on a Friday Afternoon: Meditation on the Last Words of Jesus from the Cross (Basic Books, 2000) by Richard John Neuhaus.
Numerous writers and composers have been captivated by the suggestiveness of Jesus’ Seven Last Words. But Richard John Neuhaus’s sustained exploration of these utterances is something altogether different. Through them he plumbs the depths of human experience and sets forth the central narrative of Western civilization-the suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ-in a way that engages the attention of believers, unbelievers, and those who are not sure what they believe.
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 email@example.com or just drop in on Tuesday, March 24th in the Parish Center at 6:30pm for discussion and light snacks. Read the book. Bring a friend.
