NEW BOOK FOR THE DICK UNDERWOOD BOOK CLUB
For our next book, we will read Dominion: How the Christian Revolution Remade the World, by Tom Holland. Books can be ordered from Amazon, or anywhere else on the Internet. There is a Kindle e-book edition for $19.99, the hardback is $30.26 and the paperback only $12.98. If you let me know I can order a copy for you or you can get your own copy.
Here is a brief description of Dominion from the Amazon page:
A "marvelous" account of how the Christian Revolution forged the Western imagination. Crucifixion, the Romans believed, was the worst fate imaginable, a punishment reserved for slaves. How astonishing it was that people should have come to believe that one particular victim of crucifixion-an obscure provincial named Jesus-was to be worshipped as God. Dominion explores the implications of this shocking conviction as they have reverberated throughout history. Today, the West remains utterly saturated by Christian assumptions. As Tom Holland demonstrates, our morals and ethics are not universal but are instead the fruits of a very distinctive civilization. Concepts such as secularism, liberalism, science, and homosexuality are deeply rooted in a Christian seedbed. From Babylon to the Beatles, Saint Michael to #MeToo, Dominion tells the story of how Christianity transformed the modern world.
We will meet at the Parish House on alternate Tuesdays starting March 28 at 5:30 to discuss the book chapter by chapter – about 20-25 pages every two weeks.
