I’m working on researching and writing up an article on literature as God’s gift and it’s giving me lots of ideas. Maybe too many ideas! But what would you say if I tried to organize a little online book club to go through Gene Veith’s great book, Reading Between the Lines: A Christian Guide to Literature?
It’s written for those who may not have a lot of experience with literature, but I appreciate how it walks through genres and history with some thoughtful reflection. There’s also a reading list at the end that I had entirely forgotten about and should use to flesh out my To Read list. (Although it’s a bit fleshy already!)
I haven’t read it recently, but why not read it with friends, right? 🙂
If that goes well, maybe we could go through Loving God with All Your Mind: Thinking as a Christian in the Postmodern World or something. I’d welcome suggestions.
What do you think? Interested? Is now a good or bad time?
I might see who and how many may be interested before setting up a tentative schedule, though we could probably meet once a week, either by Zoom or Facebook’s new Messenger Rooms. I’d wait so you good folks can order & receive your book. It’s available in paperback, Kindle, & Audible.
(Although I do sell some Veith books and books he’s edited, that is not one that I do.)
Meanwhile if you have any points you want me to be sure to make about literature as God’s gift, by all means let me know that as well. Comment here or on Facebook and I’ll leave a contact form here, too.

I own that book, but haven’t read it. I’d join!
