This term’s Digger Deeper Bookclub book is Chappo’s, A Foot in Two Worlds. We are about to embark on our round of discussion groups, over suppers or afternoon teas. I am looking forward to it.
Tomorrow I am going to a certain bookstore to scout out the 4th term book. Love to hear your suggestions?
The following are criteria I’m trying to meet:
1. Pitched at a bible study leader level of theological comprehension.
2. Opens up a particular topic or aspect of the Christian life for non-sepcialists (so, eg., that rules out books on the New Perspective or other academic debates)
3. Short enough not to be daunting (we did some 200+ page books which no one finished – the current book is under 100 – I’m thinking 150 might be our upper limit?)
4. Classics could be included – last year we did Luther’s ‘Freedom of a Christian’, which people found encouraging. So far this year, we haven’t done any classics…)
