Come join us.
We meet about every 6 weeks.
Next Meeting: Friday March 15th at 7PM in the CCCC Conference Room.
We have selected the next Book Club book. We will be reading “Witness” by Whittiker Chambers. To help digest all the pieces of this book, we have decided to discuss the book in 2 meetings. The first half of the book (through chaper 7) will be discussed on Friday, March 15. We will then compete the discussion during the following meeting.
Please note the following reviews of the book.
…Nearly unknown today, this extraordinary book deserves to be a classic. A gifted writer, Chambers soars when discussing the world crisis that led him to Communism, his life underground, the trials of the establishment turning against him, and the religious faith that saw him through. Chambers emerges as a profoundly conscience-driven man, one whose human feelings kept him ever so slightly out of step with Communism as a party member, and which caused him repeatedly to consider the humanity of former comrades he ended up having to attack in trying to save his nation…
…It is a terrible book. It is terrible in what it tells about men. If anything, it is more terrible in what it tells about the world in which you live. It is about what the world calls the Hiss-Chambers Case. It is about a spy case. All the props of an espionage case are there–foreign agents, household traitors, stolen documents, microfilm, furtive meetings, secret hideaways, phony names, an informer, investigations, trials, official justice…..At heart, the Great Case was this critical conflict of faiths. On a scale personal enough to be felt by all, but big enough to be symbolic, the two irreconcilable faiths of our time–Communism and Freedom–came to grips in the persons of two conscious and resolute men…
…The Chambers/Hiss case was and is a metaphor for the left/right struggle. It is the story of one man and his stand to be a witness for Christ and good, and to expose evil. It is a must read for today…
Hope you will join us.
