Discussion series concludes with “The Everlasting Man”
The “Reading Christian Classics” book discussion series will conclude Thursday, April 28 with G.K. Chesterton’s “The Everlasting Man.” All members of the Salve Regina community, along with friends of the University, are invited to participate.
Billed as the book that converted C.S. Lewis from atheism to Christianity, “The Everlasting Man” is a history of mankind, Christ and Christianity. While Chesterton’s “Orthodoxy” detailed his own spiritual journey, this book illustrates the spiritual journey of humanity, or at least of Western civilization.
Discussions are held in the McKillop Library’s special collections room beginning at 6:30 p.m. and last about one hour. Each participant should furnish his or her copy of the book, read it prior to the session and come willing to share interpretations or comments.
“Reading Christian Classics” is co-sponsored by the Department of Philosophy, the Pell Honors Program and the McKillop Library. For more information, contact Dr. Lois Eveleth, professor of philosophy, at (401) 341-3170.
