BOOK CLUB On Saturday the 5th of August we will be meeting at 09:30 or 09:15 if you want to join us for breakfast, in the creche, in the church halls. We are starting a new book called “The Case for God: What religion really means” by Karen Armstrong. About the book. There is widespread confusion about the nature of religious truth. For the first time in history, a significantly large number of people want nothing to do with God. Militant atheists preach a gospel of godlessness with the zeal of missionaries and find an eager audience.
Tracing the history of faith from the Palaeolithic Age to the present, Karen Armstrong shows that meaning of words such as ‘belief’, ‘faith’, and ‘mystery’ has been entirely altered, so that atheists and theists alike now think and speak about God – and, indeed, reason itself – in a way that our ancestors would have found astonishing.
Does God have a future? Karen Armstrong examines how we can build a faith that speaks to the needs of our troubled and dangerously polarised world.
We would love if you could join us in looking at this book, we will be looking at the first chapter for our next meeting so please come along. For more information you can contact Ronnie McNeill on 0141 577 6503.
BOOKS– There is a good collection of books in the hall of friendship. You are welcome to come and have a look and take a book for a small donation.
