No new posts Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging - by Sebastian Junger

Book #147: June, July & August 2016 (Non-Fiction) • Discussion Leader: We need a volunteer!

Buy the book as a Kindle download, audio book or hard cover and join the discussion! This is a 3-month discussion period so there is plenty of time to get involved.

We have a strong instinct to belong to small groups defined by clear purpose and understanding--"tribes." This tribal connection has been largely lost in modern society, but regaining it may be the key to our psychological survival.

No new posts On the Historicity of Jesus: Why We Might Have Reason for Doubt - by Richard Carrier

Book #143: January, February & March 2016 (Non-Fiction) • Discussion Leader: Robert Tulip

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

The assumption that Jesus existed as a historical person has occasionally been questioned in the course of the last hundred years or so ... Carrier re-examines the whole question and finds compelling reasons to suspect the more daring assumption is correct.
