The Way Sunday school class (Room B-7) has started a new book study and invites anyone interested to join us in discussions. “Why Religion?” is the latest work by religion scholar Elaine Pagels, whose previous books include “The Gnostic Gospels” and “Adam, Eve, and the Serpent." Here is a snippet from the new book’s back cover: " In the wake of great personal tragedy, National Book Award winner and New York Times bestselling author Elaine Pagels reflects on the persistence and nature of belief and why religion matters. … (Questions about this) took on a new urgency for Pagels when she was dealing with unimaginable loss: the death of her young son, followed a year later by the shocking loss of her husband. Here she interweaves her personal story with the work that she loves — illuminating how, for better and worse, religious traditions have shaped how we understand ourselves; how we relate to one another; and, most important, how we get through our most difficult challenges.” Join us for what are sure to be thought-provoking discussions !
