At our last meeting, we decided to change the Pathfinders Spirituality Book Club schedule to a series format—we will meet in September, October and November, rather than every other month. We also voted on the titles to read next. And so, our Fall 2009 schedule is:
September 9: Breaking the Spell: Religion as a Natural Phenomenon by Daniel C. Dennett
An exploration of religion as a cultural phenomenon and its benefits to human life as well as a plea for world religions to engage in more rigorous self-examination.
October 14: Muhammad: A Biography of the Prophet by Karen Armstrong
A meticulous, engrossing biography that gives a historical look at this charismatic prophet as well as the history of the West’s hostility towards Islam.
November 11: In the Spirit of Happiness by The Monks of New Skete
Modern day monastics discuss the pathways to happiness in this profound and lively look at spiritual disciplines and devotion.
