Download: Download Event


The "Beyond the Book" book club is a virtual community of readers who connect over faith-based literature. We discuss not only what's on the page but also how we can bring its lessons off the page and into our lives. We read a variety of Christian genres, both new and backlist titles, and use books to create and foster genuine friendships. We break down each book, discussing a few chapters each week. Participants can opt to join on a book-by-book basis or can become an official Beyond the Book member with access to deeper community connections, book discounts, etc.

April Book: "Where the Light Fell" by Philip Yancey

"Where the Light Fell is a gripping family narrative set against a turbulent time in post–World War II America, shaped by the collision of Southern fundamentalism with the mounting pressures of the civil rights movement and Sixties-era forces of social change. In piecing together his fragmented personal history and his search for redemption, Philip Yancey gives testament to the enduring power of our hunger for truth and the possibility of faith rooted in grace instead of fear."
