This book will help us explore topics such as grace and duty, praise and grief, truth and power. The Covenanted Self is a well-written book intended for a general audience. Authored by Old Testament professor Walter Brueggemann, the book also explores the two Great Commandments of loving God and neighbor. In addition to general discussion, we will also make time to get to know each other in small groups. My expectation is this reflection and discussion will deepen our faith as we apply what we learn to our own lives.
