Summer 2020 Discussion Groups

Readings in Church History

Interested in learning more about the history of the church?  Why are there Catholics and Protestants, and what’s the difference?  Mike Weaver, the director of the BSC, and a few students will be doing a summer reading group exploring important thinkers in Christian history.  We’ll be meeting weekly (via Zoom) starting May 12.  If you’re interested in finding out more, send an email to mike@bradleystudycenter.org.

 A Time to Build, by Yuval Levin

Americans are living through a social crisis. Our politics is polarized and bitterly divided. Culture wars rage on campus, in the media, social media, and other arenas of our common life. As Levin argues, now is not a time to tear down, but rather to build and rebuild by committing ourselves to the institutions around us. Join us as we read and discuss weekly (via Zoom) starting June 4.  If you’re interested in finding out more, send an email to mike@bradleystudycenter.org.

STARTING IN JULY
The Color of Compromise, by Jemar Tisby

Co-Led by Paul Carlier and Jefferson Jones

This book tells a history we tend to ignore or just don’t know. Equal parts painful and inspirational, it details how the American church contributed to the place we find ourselves in today, and provides hope for how we can move beyond the present moment. Join us as we read and discuss weekly (via Zoom) starting early July. If you’re interested in finding out more, send an email to pcarlier@vt.edu. Paul Carlier is Professor of Medicinal Chemistry and Jefferson Jones is pastor of Surge Ministries at Virginia Tech.
