Thursday, February 22 – 10 – 11:30am – Lenten Book Study Group

For our Lenten book study this year, we will read John Dominic Crossan’s “The Greatest Prayer: Rediscovering the Revolutionary Message of the Lord’s Prayer.” Crossan is arguably the foremost scholar of the historical Jesus. A former Roman Catholic priest and professor emeritus of religious studies at DePaul University, his twenty-sixth book looks at the Lord’s Prayer. He argues that this “greatest prayer” is undervalued in today’s society, despite our recitation of it Sunday after Sunday, if not daily. We will meet on five Thursday mornings at the church—February 22, March 1, 8, 15, and 22, from 10-11:30.  The book is available in paperback from your local book store or online, or as a digital download.
