The Good Book Club: resources now available

Reading the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles
December 14, 2017

A wide range of resources, from prayers to videos to study guides, are now available from the more than 25 partners presenting the Good Book Club, an opportunity for reflection and prayer.

The Good Book Club is a churchwide initiative that invites the reading of the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles during the liturgical seasons of Lent and Easter 2018.  Led by Forward Movement, the Good Book Club readings begin the Sunday prior to Ash Wednesday (February 11, 2018), and finish on Pentecost (May 20, 2018).

The Good Book Club, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has said, provides an opportunity to “read, mark, learn and inwardly digest the Holy Scriptures.”  He noted that “The Gospel of Luke tells the story of Jesus” while “the Acts of the Apostles tells the story of those who followed in the footsteps of Jesus.”
