Next Meeting: Friday 24 April

Published by under Meetings

Our next meeting is a book review evening.

I’m planning to review a section of Drewermann’s book on Jesus of Nazareth in which he looks at Jesus and money. In trying to understand why Jesus warned so strongly against money, Drewermann presents an interesting, but rather alternative view of money (the debitistic view). He also gives a surprising interpretation of Jesus’ words and deeds, one that finds a coherent thread in relation to money,  integrating a variety of seemingly disparate stories and teachings.  Drewermann gives us a highly relevant, if radical and disturbing, perspective on our globalized, largely capitalist world and its current economic woes.

You are invited to introduce us to any interesting and relevant books that you have been reading lately.
