METROPOLIS OF SAN FRANCISCO LAUNCHES ONLINE BOOK STUDY CLUB


The  Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco is pleased to announce
the launch of the Spring Session of the new Online Book Study Club.
Beginning March 1, 2010 and continuing until Pascha, this session's
book is: Great Lent: Journey to Pascha  by Protopresbyter Alexander
Schmemman.


This is just like a regular book club where  participants read the same
book and meet to discuss it, only the  discussion it takes place online
in a members-only forum. There is  also no set meeting time. Members
may log on to read and  participate in the discussion at any time, once
a week or even  several times weekly. Focus questions on the readings
will be  posted and discussions for this session will be moderated by
Mr.  Konstantine Salmas. MDiv., of Belmont, CA.


The Online Book  Study Club is open to members of Greek Orthodox
parishes within the  Metropolis of San Francisco. There is no cost to
participate.


To register, visit www.sanfran.goarch.org/bookclub


After registering, participants will be sent an email with  login name
and password, and a link to the Forum address. For more  information
send an email to: bookc...@sanfran.goarch.org.


The Online Book Study Club is an effort of the Metropolis  Committee on
Religious Education and Christian Formation, under the  chairmanship of
Eve (Paraskevè) Tibbs, Ph.D. She holds a Ph.D. in  Theology with a
minor in Church History an M.A. in Theology and  Biblical Studies and
is an Adjunct Assistant Professor of  Systematic Theology at Fuller
Theological Seminary, Pasadena,  California.

Went to B&N instead b/c they sold it directly while Amazon sold it thru a third party and I'll get the book today or tomorrow hopefully.

The only one I have is the second by St John. It's an excellent little book. You'll love it. Let us know how you fare on the other two as well when you have a chance to read them.

Well, I probably bit off more than I could afford at the moment since I just also purchased Great Lent, which I haven't started reading yet, and I have Orthodox Dogmatic Theology: A Concise Exposition.  Which I'm hesitant to read the ODT b//c I have been informed that there are Roman influences in it....bleck.  


Looks like I needc to get my read on!


Oh, I would also like to suggest a cd: "Thee Eyes of All Look to Thee with Hope" by the monks of St. John's Monastery.

One step at a time, Praj.  Where did you get the cd?


I'm reading Dmitri's Cross right now. Very interesting biography of a modern-day martyr for Christ.
