Dear Online Book Club Friends,
A little over one year ago we launched our online Book Club, “A Book Observed” with the goal of encouraging the reading of old books. We wanted God’s people to tap into the ways God has used certain books throughout church history.
We still want to pursue this worthy goal. But we’ve found that an online book club is not the best way to do so. For a number of reasons, we don’t think the kind of interactions these books deserve works best in cyberspace.
We’re so grateful you’ve expressed an interest in this book club. We’re disappointed that we won’t be able to continue the club in the format we first envisioned.
We will still encourage the reading of old books, just as C. S. Lewis urged. We’ll keep highlighting key books to read in Knowing and Doing and hope all our readers will expand their reading tastes accordingly.
Thank you, once again, for your interest in the book club. May God bless you as you select, read, and apply great books along the way.
