EGPC Christian Book Club

A new opportunity for study.  On the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month, starting June 12th,  we will be taking a chapter from Michener’s book The Source.  The following synopsis was taken from Amazon.
In his signature style of grand storytelling, James Michener transports us back thousands of years to the Holy Land.  Through the discoveries of modern archaeologists excavating the site Tel Makor.  Michener vividly re-creates life in an ancient city and traces the profound history of the Jewish people – from the persecution of the early Hebrews, the rise of Christianity, the Crusades, to the founding of Israel and the modern conflict in the Middle East.  An epic tale of love, strength, and faith.  The Source is a richly written saga that encompasses the history of Western civilization and the great religious and cultural ideas that have shaped our world.
Sign up if you would like to join us.  I can order a used book through Amazon for you or you can order one for yourself.  Just let me know which you prefer.  We will be doing the first chapter on June 12th.  Hope you can join us.
