Books!!!


#1

We need a forum section for books! Many things to discuss and learn from each other.

That’s a good idea. :thumbsup: The thread title could be the title of the book we’d want to discuss, and people could post their thoughts on the book.

I agree.

Very good idea! :yup:


#5

Hey! That’s a great idea! :thumbsup: Maybe we could include links to reputable online sources too; like bible, Lives of the Saints or the Catechism?

Some random thoughts for a book discussion thread:

Give advance notice (week?) of intention to discuss a specific work and have a “sign-up” list.

Check with the Administrator about limiting the number of participants to, say, 10-15.

Have a discussion leader.

Some format to the discussion. For example, if the discussion leader posts and gets 7 replies, that can get rather “wild.” How to get an online discussion without getting overloaded with posts and responses to them?

Instead of discussing an entire work, discuss a chapter or a major theme.

Might be worth a try. :slight_smile:

Great idea! We could also ask if others have read certain books, suggestions for book clubs, etc…

A couple weeks ago another forum member ordered a book to read and discuss on a thread with me. It should be in her mailbox soon. We plan to read and discuss Fully Human Fully Divine an interactive Christology by Michael Casey. We are just two but are willing to invite more. I think 10 to 15 people per book makes a good limit. Is it possible to limit on these forums? I planned on writing a reflection per chapter as we read along. I choose a reflection rather than discussion with this particular book.

You can read how the book was chosen at this thread address

Should we be limited to books offered at Catholic Answers?

The book is at Amazon

Does anyone else want to give this book a try? This one is quite promising. Are there other suggestions? Have you heard of a really good book that we can all easily purchase and discuss?

Wow! We need to go to the higher ups of this shindig!

All of the followup ideas are great!

Does anyone know any of the moderators and maybe we can request adding that section of the forum? I’ll try now that I think we have clout. All 14 of us! :slight_smile:

Thanks and may this be the beginning.

Kathy-

That’s a library!!! I have a similar pile going on here at home.

I’ve emailed Karl and I hope one day he lays eyes on it. I’m sure he’s busy but will somehow get to it.

Thanks again fellas.

This is a great idea! :thumbsup: I love to read and really love to read books on the Catholic church. Getting other’s opinions would be very useful. I am so there!
