Literary Society (Book Club)

St. Paul’s Literary Society is for EVERYONE – men, women, singles, and couples.  We read and discuss books, both fiction and non fiction in the context of faith, spirituality and Christianity. Some books may not have an overt religious/spiritual nature but create great discussion when viewed from a Christian/faith perspective. Meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month at 7:00 pm in the library.  Everyone is invited.

Throughout the year, we will try to utilize Jefferson County's new Book Club Kit system.  Each kit consists of 10 books and discussion questions.  The checkout time for the kit is 6 weeks.  The downside is that many book kits have a waiting list and a book that is selected for October might not be available until December. 

Please NOTE the book selection for April has changed.

April 5, 2017 we will be reading When I Lay My Isaac Down by Carol Kent. " Sometimes we make sacrifices to help us get ahead, to allow us more time with family, or because we believe in the cause. And then there are sacrifices for which we have no say—"Isaac experiences," as in Genesis 22—thrust upon us without warning or survival instructions.

This book outlines eight transformational power principles Gene and Carol Kent learned in the process of facing the news that forever changed their lives: Their twenty-five-year-old son, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy with an impeccable military record, shot and killed his wife's ex-husband. John Paul Kent, long recognized for his exemplary character, now walks a path no one could have predicted, and his family lives in the aftermath of a devastation most cannot imagine.

Carol's candid retelling of her emotional and spiritual agony will touch your heart. The principles the Kents learned in the process of surviving such unspeakable circumstances will bolster your faith, renew your hope, and challenge you to new levels of personal and spiritual commitment." Amazon
