Dead Theologians Society
Read and discuss a book.(Spring: Table Talk by Martin Luther) Contact:  Paul Post

During the current time of physical distancing (a better term than social distancing) the Dead Theologians reading group is meeting online and invites others join us. If you could not normally join us because of location or your schedule perhaps you can now. We meet Monday mornings at 7:45am for an hour (although sometimes conversation continues a bit longer). Here is the Zoom link if you can join us – If you need the phone or other links let me know.
We are reading Martin Luther’s Table Talk which is available in the public domain in lots of places including
(Which has a useful linked table of contents.) Note we are doing the full version not the selections from version. Each week’s reading is topical and generally independent of previous weeks. We are jumping around some to keep the weekly reading amounts similar. For next Monday we are reading the “chapters” Of the Patriarchs and Prophets and Of the Devil and his WorksIf you want the reading list it is linked here. A word of caution Luther was a man of his times (aren’t we all?) and does rail against his opponent, the pope of the time. He does have many good insights on Christian life.
