Spring 2023 Groups:

Strange New World: How Thinkers and Activists Redefined Identity and Sparked the Sexual Revolution (Carl Trueman)

What is causing social norms to change so dramatically and so rapidly that biblical Christianity seems outdated, and even evil to many? Why is it so much harder than in previous generations for young adults to own a home, raise a family, and feel plugged into their church and community? Through Carl Trueman’s Strange New World, let’s explore how to disentangle Christianity from expressive individualism, to cultivate a more authentic Christian faith that prioritizes loving God and others above a shallow self-love.

Led by Jonathan Boreyko (Associate Professor, Mechanical Engineering)
Mondays, 4:00-5:00pm
January 30-March 27
@ the Bradley Study Center, 104 Faculty Street

Narnia: A Gospel-Themed World

(The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis)

Let’s take a look at the world that C.S. Lewis imagined in Narnia, how it took shape in his mind, and how it creatively mirrors the gospel story and the Christian life! What can we learn about Jesus, the gospel, the Christian worldview, and the Christian life from the first 2 books: The Lion the Witch, and the Wardrobe (1950) and Prince Caspian (1951)? Maybe these “children’s stories” hold something powerful for everyone — from the dedicated Christian, to the curious non-Christian. Join us and find out!

Led by Taylor Rollo (local pastor)
