Weekly Book Discussion Group

The weekly book discussion group has been meeting for more than 18 years, and generally reads 4 or 5 books a year. We meet weekly on Thursdays at 7:15 pm to discuss and debate current, timely books on contemporary Catholic topics. Dr. Tony Tambasco, a theologian and biblical scholar at Georgetown University, leads the discussions. To join, contact Bob Stewart, grobertstewart1@mac.com

Reminders:
 
1) We have bad weather coming our way and may have to cancel the HT book discussion this Wednesday.
Stay Tuned, please.  I will send out a notice before noon on Wednesday, if we have to cancel because of weather.
 
2) Please read chapters  chapters 7, 8, and 9 of Systematic Theology by Rausch.
 
 3) Our next book will be a book by Jesuit biblical scholar Fr. John Donohue: Seek Justice That You May Live: Reflections and Resources on the Bible and Social Justice. We will start this book two weeks from this Wednesday and complete discussion on it in two weeks.

Concluding reflections are included.
