Online book club: A God that Could Be Real

I read a lot.

I read for fun and entertainment, of course. Right now I’m reading the Young Adult novel The Gates by John Connelly, for instance. I ready anything by Bill Bryson, and I enjoy a good action-adventure story from time to time.

I read “Build My Brain” books too, like Creativity, Incby Ed Catmull or Outliers by Malcom Gladwell. I even read books that I know will challenge me not to throw them across the room, like . . .  anything by Richard Dawkins.

My favourite fiction book is Life of Pi by Yann Martel, and my favourite children’s book is Harold and the Purple Crayon. 

978-080707339-1Right now, a group at my (progressive, inclusive, justice-seeking, mind-stretching, spirit-expanding) church is working through A God that Could be Real: Spirituality, Science, and the Future of Our Planet by Nancy Ellen Abrams. I can’t attend the book study group because I’m not available Monday evenings, so I thought I’d give myself the Bell Canada long-distance feeling and work through it online. If some of you choose to read along, that would be wonderful.

I’ll read the first three chapters and report back in.
