No new posts Oliver Twist - by Charles Dickens

Book #134: September, October & November 2014 (Fiction) • Book Discussion Leader: We need a volunteer!

Buy the book as an Amazon.com Kindle download or paperback or read 100% FREE on Project Gutenberg. And then join the discussion! This is a 3-month discussion period so there is plenty of time to get involved.

Oliver Twist's famous cry of the heart — "Please, sir, I want some more" — has resounded with generations of readers of all ages. The author poured his own youthful experience of Victorian London's unspeakable squalor into this realistic depiction of a spirited young innocent's unwilling but inevitable recruitment into a scabrous gang of thieves. Masterminded by the loathsome Fagin, the underworld crew features some of Dickens's most memorable characters, including the vicious Bill Sikes, gentle Nancy, and the juvenile pickpocket known as the Artful Dodger.

No new posts Sense and Goodness Without God: A Defense of Metaphysical Naturalism - by Richard Carrier

Book #133: September, October & November 2014 (Non-Fiction) • Book Discussion Leader: Robert Tulip

Buy the book as an Amazon.com Kindle download or as paperback and join the discussion! This is a 3-month discussion period so there is plenty of time to get involved.

If God does not exist, then what does? Is there good and evil, and should we care? How do we know what's true anyway? And can we make any sense of this universe, or our own lives? Sense and Goodness without God answers all these questions in lavish detail, without complex jargon.

Book #131: June, July & August 2014 (Non-Fiction) • Book Discussion Leader: Dexter

Buy the book as an Amazon.com Kindle download or as Hardcover and join the discussion! This is a 3-month discussion period so there is plenty of time to get involved.

What is the meaning of life? Am I free? Why is there something and not nothing? What do we really know? Is there such a thing as society? Can machines think? What is time? How can I deceive myself? Why be good? What fills up space? Can we truly understand each other? Why do things keep on keeping on? Are we rational? What am I? What are my rights? Is truth relative? Do we need God? What is human nature? What is beauty? Is death to be feared?
