Sarah Gravelle has picked our book for the June book club meeting and will lead our discussion. We will meet at 7pm at Debby's house on Tuesday June 19.
Even if you haven't read the book, come and join in the discussion and of course, we always have a yummy treat. Suggestions for books to read are always welcome too.
Here is a bit about the book:
Founder of the largest indigenous Christian church in American history, Joseph Smith published the 584-page Book of Mormon when he was twenty-three and went on to organize a church, found cities, and attract thousands of followers before his violent death at age thirty-eight. Richard Bushman, an esteemed cultural historian and a practicing Mormon, moves beyond the popular stereotype of Smith as a colorful fraud to explore his personality, his relationships with others, and how he received revelations. An arresting narrative of the birth of the Mormon Church, Joseph Smith: Rough Stone Rolling also brilliantly evaluates the prophet’s bold contributions to Christian theology and his cultural place in the modern world.
See you on June 19.
