Exploring Truth & Beauty Through Literature

Just as nature reveals the glory and power of God, great works of art and literature can also reveal truth and beauty and ultimately point us back to God's Word. Let's explore great literature together! We will use Philippians 4:8 as our lens and pull that which is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and praiseworthy.

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things." ~Philippians 4:8

This is a no-stress, no-shame, no-guilt book club where we read books that challenge us and make us think, books we may not have chosen on our own or may not even have had the courage to take on and stick with without a group.

Life happens ... you may not finish a book in time for the meeting (or even started!). You are still welcome to come and take from or contribute to the discussion as you are comfortable, although there may be some spoilers discussed!

If you have any questions or would like more information, contact Kara at kgunza@cornerstonenj.org or RSVP through the sign up button below to let me know you're in!
