This summer’s President’s Book Group will be held in Hoover at lunch time (12:00-1:15) on July 12, 18, 25, and August 1.
The book we will be discussing is The Vocation of Lutheran Higher Education, edited by Jason A. Mahn. About 5 free copies remain available in Doreen’s office in Hoover. Additional copies, if needed can be purchased at/through North Wind Books.
This invitation is for all faculty, staff, and administrators. Each week we will discuss and test the ideas presented in the essays. We will use the following sequence and selection of essays to start each week’s discussion:
July 12 – PART ONE: Chapter 1, “The Emergence …”
July 18 – PART TWO: Chapter 5, “Learning and Teaching …”
July 25 – PART THREE: Chapter 11, “Integrity and Fragmentation …”
Aug 1 – PART FOUR: Chapter 13, “Semper Reformanda …”
I believe the Preface and Introduction can be helpful in orienting our reading experience and appreciating the genesis and intention of this collection. Each essay concludes with a short list of discussion questions that we may use.
All are welcome for any of the dates. Attend when you are able.
