St. John Paul II Book Club
Join the book club that started it all! Since our parish was founded, we've been meeting on the Second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM in the parish conference room to meet other parish members and to read works that enlighten us about the principles and values of our Catholic Faith.
See our current offerings below.
Teachings for an Unbelieving World
Archbishop Karol Wojtyla
Beginning September 13
"Teachings for an Unbelieving World is an extended meditation on Acts 17 where Paul speaks to the cultural elite of Athens after he observed an altar of an unknown god in the city. Quoting from both the Bible and the documents of Vatican II, John Paul II draws timely wisdom from the apostle’s mission to bring the truth of the Gospel to a worldly culture of sophistication and disbelief, one not unlike our own...
[This book] affirms the continuity of Catholic faith about:
humanity’s place in God’s creation;
our search for meaning, truth, and freedom;
addressing a culture of unbelief;
the gift of redemption in Jesus Christ;
the grace of the Holy Spirit;
the role of the Church in the world;
the power of the Eucharist;
the redemptive and self-giving nature of human love; and
the importance of prayer."
