Life of Holiness: Reading Romans with Jim F.
Posted by Robert C. on February 22, 2013
A group of us have decided to jointly read and discuss Jim Faulconer’s recent book The Life of Holiness: Notes and Reflections on Romans 1, 5-8.
We plan to start with the introduction next week, and then proceed at a relatively slow pace—roughly 20 pages a week, and these are pretty short, easy-to-read pages. We’ll be starting next week, but that’s just the introduction which you can read later. So, you should have plenty of time to obtain a book and read along with us!
Below is the reading schedule. On the lds-herm listserv, we began organizing discussion leaders for several weeks. There are, however, still several weeks open—so if you would like to volunteer to lead the discussion for a week or two, please email me and let me know which weeks you could take: rcouchZZZ@gmail.com (but do not include the ZZZs).
Here is the schedule (the date represents the Monday of the week to begin the reading; we’ll try to get the posts up early in the week):

4/1: Romans 1:16-17 (pp. 111-138) [-Kirk C.]
