New insights on grace and the soul will be brought to light on Saturday, February 28, 2009.
On that day, from 1:30 - 4:30 p.m., the Institute for Christian Spirituality will hold its next Great Spiritual Book of the Semester Club meeting, which will focus on two works by famed author Graham Greene: The Power and the Glory and The Heart of the Matter. The first is the story of a Roman Catholic priest in the deeply troubled Tabasco region of Mexico in the 1930s, a time when tensions between the church and government were high. The other tells the tale of moral change and a prideful individual's relationship with the Catholic church in Sierra Leone. Both books were selected by Time Magazine as part of its 100 Best English-Language Novels from 1923 -- 2005.
In addition to Graham's masterworks, participants will also engage in discussion about grace and the soul in the Letters of St. Paul. The discussions will be led by:
- Reverend Ian Boyd, president of the G.K. Chesterton Institute for Faith & Culture
- Dermot Quinn, professor in the department of history and a member of the Board of Advisers of the G.K. Chesterton Institute for Faith & Culture
- Gregory Glazov, associate professor of biblical studies and coordinator of the Great Spiritual Books program
The event is $15 and will take place in Lewis Hall. For more information, or to R.S.V.P., please contact Debbie Kurus at (973) 313-6329 or firstname.lastname@example.org
