TVCI Read Along

Join the TVCI staff and other believers for a summer of reading! We’ll be engaging with two different books over the next several weeks that speak to Christian story, belief, and formation. While we can’t meet up right now in a coffee shop or living room for a discussion, we can utilize technology to do so! The TVCI staff will stream live on YouTube each Monday night to discuss the current book and interact with your questions. You can purchase the books using the links below or wherever you like to shop!

When and Where

  • 8 p.m. – 9 p.m., Mondays, June 8–July 27
  • Live on YouTube

“In a world filled with ambiguity, many of us long for a belief system that provides straightforward answers to complex questions and clarity in the face of confusion. We want faith to act like an orderly set of truth-claims designed to solve the problems and pain that life throws at us. With signature candor and depth, Jen Pollock Michel helps readers imagine a Christian faith open to mystery. While there are certainties in Christian faith, at the heart of the Christian story is also paradox.”

Reading Schedule:
June 8 – Part 1: Incarnation (Chs. 1–4)
June 15 – Part 2: Kingdom (Chs. 5–8)
June 22 – Part 3: Grace (Chs. 9–12)
June 29 – Part 4: Lament (Chs. 13–16)

Each week's discussion will center around questions included in the book at the end of each week's reading as well as questions submitted by participants.

“Are these ancient words still relevant for us today? Their outward simplicity hides their inward complexity. Jesus himself sums up the entire law in a pair of commandments: Love God with all your heart, mind, and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself. Peter Leithart re-introduces the Ten Commandments. He shows us how they address every arena of human life, giving us a portrait of life under the lordship of Jesus, who is the heart and soul of the commandments.”

Reading Schedule:
July 6 – Introduction–Chapter 2
July 13 – Chapters 3–5
July 20 – Chapters 6–8
July 27 – Chapters 9–10

In lieu of a discussion guide, each week's discussion will center on themes from the text and questions submitted by participants.
