I’d Like to Visit Your Group (online, of course!)

Hi, friends –

“If anybody still reads my books in fifty years, I think this is one they will still read.”

That’s what I told my wife the other day after spending a week recording the audiobook for Faith After Doubt.

As I’ve poured my heart into this book over the last two years, I have had the sense that it was getting to some deep core issues I had been digging toward for my whole career.

The book comes out January 5. Of course, you can order it now.

Normally, I would get out on a speaking tour to help launch a new book, but this time, that’s impossible. So here’s what I’d like to try – with your help, of course.

If you can recruit ten or more friends to order the book and begin reading it, I would like to show up for an an online Q & R session with you.

We can do it via Zoom, Google Hangout, Skype, whatever you prefer. We can do it on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday night, or possibly at a different time that we can make work, in January, February, or March.

If possible, I’d like to go deep in one or two chapters each week. So here’s a rough schedule. Obviously, I’ll be happy to respond to any question … but it would be of special interest to me if we could dig deeper according to the following schedule:

Week of – Focus 

January 5  – Permission to Doubt Preface/Introduction

January 10 – Doubt as Loss, Doubt as Loneliness (1 – 2)

January 17 – Doubt as Crisis, Doubt as Doorway (3-4)

January 24 – Doubt as Growth (5)

January 31 – Doubt as Descent and Dissent (6-7)

February 7 – Doubt as Love, a Human Problem (8-9)

February 14 – Doubt, Beliefs, Revolutionary Love (10)

February 21 – Communities of Harmony (11)

February 28 – Theologies of Harmony (12)

March 7 – Spiritualities of Harmony for the Rising Generation (13)
