“The central Christian belief is that Christ’s death has somehow put us right with God and given us a fresh start. Theories as to how it did this are another matter. A good many different theories have been held as to how it works; what all Christians are agreed on is that it does work.”
CS Lewis, The Perfect Penitent, on Mere Christianity.

Shawn: this is going to be a great topic and I feel that we can all walk away learning a great deal, *please* come and join the conversation. And also I would plead with you to read the suggested readings as well as doing your own research to prepare for the discussion so that we can have a fruitful time. See you soon!
