Summer Book Club starts June 29

Anne Slivko and Alison Horn will co-lead a book group on Sunday mornings during the summer. We will read Anne Rice's Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt starting Sunday, June 29 at 9:15 am. in the Charney Room.

From the Anne Rice official website is this description:

This new introduction appears in the paperback edition of the book, released November 1st, 2006:

This book seeks to present a realistic fictional portrait of Our Lord in Time. It is rooted in the faith that the Creator of the Universe became human in the person of Jesus Christ and “dwelt among us.” The magnificent mystery of the Incarnation is accepted and affirmed as fact. Scripture is the inspiration for the emotions and powers of the Child Jesus as they are envisioned here. History as well as the gospels is the source for this picture of a world in which Our Lord might have lived, as a little boy, in war and in peace, from day to day.

Ad majorem Dei gloriam. July 12, 2006

Sign up in the back of the Church or outside the Chapel so that we will know how many books to buy. (We are using the large paperback book club edition with extra materials.)

Here is a great summer beach book and a great group of people to talk about it. Contact Anne (610-515-8021) or Alison (484-851-3367 ) or call the parish office (or e-mail here).
