Adult EducationJanuary 19: First Session of Adult Ed Book Hour
The third Sunday of the month, from January through June, will be an adult ed book hour. The first session will be January 19, and our book is How to be a Sinner (Peter Bouteneff). The focus of the this session will be pages 9-39 (preface, intro, chapter 1).
Our goal: A healthy guided conversation as we ask questions to examine the author’s arguments, assumptions, implications, to better understand his/her point of view, and to sharpen our own thinking.
Who is adult ed book hour for? Everyone! Do you just want to see if a book might interest you? All regular adult ed attenders are encouraged to attend, even If you have not read the book. Join in and learn from those who have read it!
How to purchase the book: Check out www.bookfinder.com for various online options and pricing (both used and new; SVS Press is the publisher of the book, which sells for $20 from their site).
