No new posts Science Was Born of Christianity: The Teaching of Fr. Stanley L. Jaki - by Stacy Trasancos

Book #130: April, May & June 2014 (Non-Fiction) • Book Discussion Leader: Stahrwe

Buy the book as a Amazon.com Kindle download and join the discussion! This is a 3-month discussion period so there is plenty of time to get involved.

It is a stark claim to be sure, but do not reject it until you understand it. This book provides the argument in outline form, to be read beginning to end, one chapter at a time, or referenced when presenting and defending the argument to others.

Book #129: March, April & May 2014 (Non-Fiction) • Book Discussion Leader: Geo & Dexter

Buy the book as a Amazon.com Kindle download or as a Paperback and join the discussion! This is a 3-month discussion period so there is plenty of time to get involved.

No new posts Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty - by Daron Acemoglu and James Robinson

Book #126: January, February & March 2014 (Non-Fiction) • Book Discussion Leader: Robert Tulip

Buy the book as a Amazon.com Kindle download or as a Paperback and join the discussion! This is a 3-month discussion period so there is plenty of time to get involved.

Brilliant and engagingly written, "Why Nations Fail" answers the question that has stumped the experts for centuries: Why are some nations rich and others poor, divided by wealth and poverty, health and sickness, food and famine?

No new posts A Game of Thrones: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book One - by George R. R. Martin

Book #128: March, April & May 2014 (Fiction) • Book Discussion Leader: We need a volunteer!

Buy the book as a Amazon.com Kindle download or as a Paper Back and join the discussion! This is a 3-month discussion period so there is plenty of time to get involved. This discussion is open to viewers of the HBO series too! And we'll be discussing the ENTIRE SERIES so join at any time.

Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall.
