November Book Club

November 30, 2010

We enjoyed another lovely get together in November when we reviewed two books at our Book Club meeting; both received very positive comments and were enjoyed by most…

First on the list was Through the Narrow Gate by Kate Armstrong.  Book Club score 8.5/10

Through the Narrow Gate is Karen Armstrong’s intimate memoir of life inside a Catholic convent. With refreshing honesty and clarity, the book takes readers on a revelatory adventure that begins with Armstrong’s decision, at age seventeen, to devote herself to God. What she discovers in the course of her spiritual training offers a fascinating view into a shrouded religious life, and a vivid, moving account of the spiritual coming of age of one of our most loved and respected interpreters of religious faith.

And the second book was Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.  Book Club score 8/10

A celebrated writer’s irresistible, candid, and eloquent account of her pursuit of worldly pleasure, spiritual devotion, and what she really wanted out of life.

Here are the books on our reading list for the January Book Club meeting;
