Announcing the Christian Civics Book Club

Join Christian Civics leaders in reading, considering and discussing books that can shape the way we carry our faith forward in the public square.

The Christian Civics Book Club is a new opportunity for Christian Civics leaders and supporters to dive into books that might inform the way we practice our faith in the public square.

Each month, we’ll feature a new book to read and react to. Some of these will be books that members of our team really like, some will be books we’ve been meaning to get around to, and some will be books that are already on many of our readers’ minds.

A rotating team of guests and Christian Civics leaders will join me on The Christian Civics Podcast to share our thoughts and reactions to the book, as well as answer your questions and share your thoughts about it.

The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and ReligionTo kick this book club off, we’ll be starting with Jonathan Haidt’s The Righteous Mind, a book that introduced the idea of motivated reasoning into a lot of the conversations I was having with friends at the time.

This one falls under the category of “books I’ve been meaning to get around to.” I’m excited to finally sit down and read it, and I’d love to get your thoughts on it or your questions about it. You can order the book from Amazon today and submit your questions, comments or observations using the form below.

Thanks for taking part in this new way to build community even in the face of the COVID-19 emergency measures. I’m really looking forward to hearing what you have to say about this book!
