new read-through in nov/02
- Hi, NKOCers -
I emailed Brian, and it looks like the "sequel" to our book will be out in
March/April 2003. I'm looking forward to the continued story and
conversation, aren't you? I mean, we've speculated on "what would Neo do?"
and such, and another book will build more into the characters, I'm sure.
Maybe Brian can give us a heads up on what to expect? 8^)
I'd like to start another read-through, giving another opportunity to
newcomers and old friends to re-read the book before the new one comes out.
With this in mind, if we take a chapter per week, we'll need to start the
first week of November. That works to give individuals enough time to
prepare for the book again. It also serves to give groups time to talk
about it in "real time," promoting a book group of their own in their
communities/churches. I think this time I'd like to see more of that -
opportunities for us to read this with the "real" people we deal with every
day, share the questions and experiences, ask for forum feedback from this
NKOC list to answer some of the hard questions, etc.
November 1st is a Friday - I'll re-post some of the opening comments from
the previous times, and then we'll jump into chapter one discussion on Nov
11/1 - Intro
11/4 - Ch 1
11/11 - Ch 2
11/18 - Ch 3
11/25 - Ch 4
... and so on
Also, if you are planning to start a group in your locale, and it's okay
for others to join from this group, let us know. For instance, I hope to
start a discussion here in Columbia, SC, probably meeting every other week.
If you're interested and in the SC Midlands area, email me and we'll hook
looking forward to the ride - thanks & peace - rick
- Here's a reply I received from Brian:
>>Thanks, Rick, for the posting -- a bit about the new book. A new character
is introduced, a scientist in the Galapagos Islands who gets to know Neo.
Neo shares the story of the gospel with her over several conversations.
Dan gets involved too. So, the book is an attempt to tell our story in a
new way. I think this will be my favorite book that I've written. I
appreciate your prayers as I finish up the final edits this week. Hope
that helps! -- Brian
Methinks this is going to be fun... peace - rick
