Share your love of reading with your church community. The Calvary Book Club meets the 3rd Monday of the month to discuss a book that both intellectually stimulates and challenges our faith. Calvary Book Club's next meeting is Monday, April 15 at 7pm in the Dining Room and will discuss Karen Swallow Prior's On Reading Well: Finding the Good Life Through Great Books.

ABOUT THE BOOK

This is a recent book by Karen Swallow Prior, who teaches literature at Liberty University. This will be the book club's first time reading a non-fiction book—though it is a non-fiction book about reading fiction, so Zach Wagner is letting it slide. 

"Reading great literature well has the power to cultivate virtue. Great literature increases knowledge of and desire for the good life by showing readers what virtue looks like and where vice leads. It is not just what one reads but how one reads that cultivates virtue. Reading good literature well requires one to practice numerous virtues, such as patience, diligence, and prudence. And learning to judge wisely a character in a book, in turn, forms the reader's own character." (Amazon)
