DTS suspended for a season

I am sorry to say that Dead Theologians will be suspended for the time being. I do apologize for the belated notice. When it came time to restart the group for the fall, I agreed to go ahead with it. However, I have gone back to school and will be starting a new job shortly. At the moment, I don’t feel that I have the time and energy to devote to all those things I’d like to. I am encouraged, however, to see so many other great small group offerings available and hope that you will take advantage of those.

For those who have been a part of this group, I have to say that these past three years have been a great experience, studying alongside you, sharing ideas, struggles and successes. I pray that the family God put together will remain connected even in this new season.

Tortured for Christ reading schedule (Updated 6/18)

This is the reading schedule for the current book, Tortured for Christ by Richard Wurmbrand. If you haven't received your free copy from Voice of the Martyrs, Amazon also has many used copies. The dates are subject to change. We will likely have cookout sometime during this schedule; date to be determined.

I am looking forward to this study and hope that you will go into it prayerfully. While some of Wurmbrand's criticisms of communism may not be as relevant today as they were when he wrote them (simply because of the Soviet Union's fall), I think the broader insights into persecution and how we can live our faith in the face of monumental, even state-sponsored, adversity are valuable and timeless.

25 - No group (VBS block party!)

2 - Cookout? Details to come...
9 - Chapter 4 (pg. 69-84)
16 - Chapter 5
23 - Chapter 6
30 - Chapter 7 & Epilogue

Tortured for Christ starts tonight 5/21

After taking a week off, we will be getting into our new book tonight--Tortured for Christ by Richard Wurmbrand. Don't worry if you haven't received your copy yet. We will be doing intros to the book, author and one another. I'll post a reading schedule in the next few days. Looking forward to diving into this new study with you!

5/14 Update to an Update

Hey folks. As you may know, our next study is Richard Wurmbrand's Tortured for Christ. Unfortunately, only one person in the group has received their copy so far. So, we won't be meeting tonight, but should be next week. You may want to request your copy again through VOM, just in case, or possibly even order it through a bookstore online. It's a fairly inexpensive book.

DTS So Far

I thought it would be fun to revisit the works we've studied as a group since we began in the fall of 2006. Here they are:

The Books...

How Should We Then Live? by Francis Schaeffer (actually a video series with study guide)

Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

The Weight of Glory by C.S. Lewis

The Mind of the Maker by Dorothy Sayers

The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan

A Practical View of Christianity by William Wilberforce

Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby (an exception to the “dead” theologians rule)

All of Grace by Charles Spurgeon

Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer

And Excerpts From...

Soren Kierkegaard

C.S. Lewis

Flannery O’Connor

Martin Luther

Jonathan Edwards

Thomas Merton

Did I miss any? Let me know.
