AUGUST 20, 2019

Plans are underway for our upcoming Monday Night Book Study, featuring a book written by Barbara Brown Taylor. "Holy Envy" looks at the major religions of the world from the perspective of Christianity and promises to be informing as well as challenging as she speaks from her experience as a teacher of World Religions at a college in Georgia and an ordained Episcopalian priest. 

Her first memoir, Leaving Church, won an Author of the Year award from the Georgia Writers Association in 2006.  Her next two books, An Altar in the World (2010) and Learning to Walk in the Dark (2015), one of our book study selections, earned places on the New York Times bestseller list.  She has served on the faculties of Piedmont College, Columbia Theological Seminary, Candler School of Theology at Emory University, McAfee School of Theology at Mercer University, and the Certificate in Theological Studies program at Arrendale State Prison for Women in Alto, Georgia.  In 2014 TIME included her on its annual list of Most Influential People; in 2015 she was named Georgia Woman of the Year; in 2016 she received the President’s Medal at the Chautauqua Institution in New York.  Her fourteenth book, Holy Envy, was released by HarperOne in March 2019.

Our first study night is September 16, 2019. Book sales and registrations began on August 25, 2019.
