Great Books Club
"In reading great literature I become a thousand men and yet remain myself. Like the night sky in the Greek poem, I see with a myriad eyes, but it is still I who see. Here, as in worship, in love, in moral action, and in knowing, I transcend myself; and am never more myself than when I do." --C.S. Lewis
Great Books Club will resume in Spring 2024
What does great literature this have to do with the journey of faith? The Catholic intellectual tradition has long held great works of literature in high esteem, even those that are not explicitly Catholic. Stories are powerful and can help us discover what it means to be human and how to live the best life. These works introduce us to characters and places that we may not encounter anywhere else which naturally invites us to expand our minds to receive truth, goodness, and beauty through perspectives different than our own. The more we read great books, the more we can expand our minds and hearts to receive God.
Savannah hosts The Great Books Club on works of fiction and spiritual autobiographies. This group a great opportunity to expand our personal perspectives, partake in meaningful discussions, and have fun! Whether you read every day, or it’s been a while since you picked up a book, we’d like to invite you to join us for discussions!
We will not be providing the books so you will need to either buy a copy or rent it from the library. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
