Pastor’s Book Club
4th Sundays, 5:00-6:00pm | McAdams Hall
Next Meeting: Sunday, March 26
St. Paul and the community is a group of readers. You read. St. Paul staff reads. I, one of your pastors, read. I will read anything. Novels. Poems. Children’s books. Newspapers. Magazines. Cereal boxes. There’s so much to read and so little time. What is better than reading by yourself? Reading with others and sharing insights, thoughts, and feelings about what we read.
In the St. Paul Pastor’s Book Club we will read something that the pastor has been reading, a work that has in some way shaped the life and ministries of St. Paul.
The club meets 4th Sundays from 5:00-6:00pm in McAdams Hall.
May 28: The Book of Joy by Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu
June 25: The Shack by William P. Young
Join for one or all sessions. Read all or part (or little) of the book. Come for the discussion.

What’s being read?
Making Sense of the Bible: Rediscovering the Power of Scripture Today by Adam Hamilton
In Making Sense of the Bible, Adam Hamilton invites us into an honest conversation about the Bible. The book begins with foundational questions such as, How and when was the Bible written? Who decided which books made it into the scriptures and why? How literally must we read it? And, Is the Bible ever wrong?
From there, Hamilton considers the real questions people frequently ask that continue to divide Christians and denominations alike, including:
• Were Adam and Eve real people?
• Why is God so violent in the Old Testament?
• Why would Paul command women to “keep silent in the church”?
• Is Jesus the only way to salvation?
• Is the Book of Revelation a guide to the End Times?
In approachable and inviting language, Hamilton addresses these often misunderstood biblical themes leading readers to a deeper appreciation of the Bible so that we might hear God speak through it and find its words to be life-changing and life-giving.
