Read and discuss with Father Jeff:
N.T. Wright’s “The Way of the Lord”
Meets weekly October 8, 15, 22, and November 5
Vividly evoking the sights, sounds, and smells of the Holy Land, this book by N. T. Wright is ideal for both individual and group study by any readers who have embarked on the spiritual journey of the Christian life.
Wright explores all the sites that travelers usually visit on a tour of the Holy Land, explaining not only what is to be seen but also the context of faith that makes these sites, and the events associated with them, famous around the world. By weaving together Old and New Testament stories, poetry, and original insights, Wright helps readers enter imaginatively into each scene. He also sprinkles his narratives with reflections on the nature of pilgrimage generally and with discussion of vital contemporary issues related to the Holy Land.
This is a book to be read with Christian pilgrimage in mind, whether one is traveling to the Holy Land physically or merely in heart and mind.
Are we doomed to make the mistakes of the past? Go deeper with your knowledge of Church History within and without the Anglican Communion: Read and discuss Prof. Mark Noll’s overview of the 14 Decisive Moments in Christian History. With Father Jeff for two weeks in November via Zoom.
