Lenten book

The Adult Forum at church have decided to read Miroslav Volf's new book, Free of Charge: Giving and Forgiving in a Culture Stripped of Grace, during Lent. We'll read and discuss one chapter (20 to 30 pages) for each of the six Sundays in Lent.

I first read about the book at Byron Borger's Hearts & Minds BookNotes blog, so I ordered the copies from his store. The book is the Archbishop of Canterbury's "official 2006 Lent book." Also, Volf was one of my professors in seminary.

The topics of giving and forgiving will be a fitting Lenten study and meditation, I hope. Each topic is covered in three chapters: God the Giver/Forgiver; How Should We Give/Forgive?; and How Can We Give/Forgive?.
