2016 Reading Group Schedule

OK, friends — here’s the reading plan for 2016.  We have a range of texts, from spiritual literature, to doctrinal treatises, to histories and sermons.  They’re all classics, and while I bet you’ve read some of them, you probably haven’t read most.  (Don’t worry: I’ve not read them all before, either!)

May God bless our reading efforts and our new year!


January: Justin Martyr (2nd century) — The First Apology and the Dialogue with Trypho

February: Athanasius of Alexandria (4th century) — On the Incarnation and the Life of Antony
