Just as nature reveals God’s power and glory, great works of art and literature can 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 explore that which is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and praiseworthy. In the words of Pablo Picasso, “We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth.”
The vision for this group is to be 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!). But you are still welcome to come and take from or contribute to the discussion as you are comfortable, although there might be some spoilers discussed!
Book: Home by Marilynne Robinson

February: Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis
Fascinated by the myth of Cupid and Psyche throughout his life, C. S. Lewis wrote this, his last novel, to retell their story from the perspective of Psyche’s sister, Orual: “I saw well why the gods do not speak to us openly, nor let us answer . . . Why should they hear the babble that we think we mean? How can they meet us face to face till we have faces?” Lewis provides an engaging retelling of one of the most popular myths from antiquity with what The Saturday Review called “new meaning, new depths, new terrors.” With his trademark insightfulness, Lewis reminds us of our own fallibility and the role of a higher power in our lives.
