Tuesday Book Club
I just wanted to let everyone know about a few changes to our Emerging Women Book Club discussion. I've enjoyed being part of the discussions so far, but have felt that at times the format is a bit overwhelming. In the past we have put up one post for the entire discussion. Sometimes that turns into a very involved discussion, sometimes it doesn't. So to help make the discussion more accessible and less overwhelming, we have decided to break it up during the month. We will still discuss one book per month, but now we will post part of the discussion each Tuesday. So starting in August get ready for "Tuesday Book Clubs" - a book discussion post every Tuesday. We hope that this will give everyone more opportunity to join in.

The purpose of the book discussions is to discuss new ideas, explore theology and culture, grow in faith and understanding, and learn more about ourselves and others as we delve into a book a month. We encourage everyone who can to participate. Try to read the book, but feel free to join in the discussion no matter how much you managed to read. We also encourage you to post reviews/comment on other books you are reading. If there is a book (or chapter even) that you think other emerging women could learn from, tell us about it! Engage us with your thoughts and share with us what you are learning. And if you have suggestions for future books to read in the book club please send them to emergingwomen@gmail.com.

Here are the selections for discussion in our Tuesday Book Club. All are available to purchase at the Emerging Women Amazon Resource Store.

August - Misquoting Jesus by Bart Ehrman

September - The Faith Club: A Muslim, A Christian, A Jew-- Three Women Search for Understanding by Ranya Idliby, Suzanne Oliver, Priscilla Warner

October - Justice in the Burbs by Will and Lisa Samson

November - The End of Memory: Remembering Rightly in a Violent World by Miroslav Volf

December - The Real Mary by Scot McKnight

Join us as we try this new format and explore ideas together.
