    Terrific post. Thanks very much for all the recommendations.

    For your idea/someday files: I’d love to hear how you developed your Mere Christianity class. A friend and I were recently talking about developing a small group class around that or around Narnia. I’d enjoy hearing what you did and how it went.

      It went really well. Here’s how I structured it: we met every Friday for about an hour at a local coffee shop. We did one section at a time, so Book I took us five weeks to get through. The pace was perfect. The reading was dense, so a few pages at a time was manageable for everyone. I helped explain the concepts Lewis introduced and then we discussed scripture and application. The group remained fairly small and a few women fell out because the reading was too difficult for them. It’s not your typical women’s study. It’s a really powerful book and worked well. If you end up pursuing it, definitely let me know because I have a few resources I can point you to.

    Loved this post and all of your recommendations — thank you!

    I love books & reading, and psychology… so this is right up my alley.

    The only book I can think to recommend to you is “The Righteous Mind” by Jonathan Haidt. I haven’t read it, yet, but look forward to doing so (I own a copy). 🙂
