Out of the Silent Planet Book Group
Mondays at 7pm, May 1-22, 2017
Led by Rev. Jay Moses
The Marion E. Wade Center will host a book discussion group on C.S. Lewis's novel Out of the Silent Planet on Monday evenings in May, 7-8pm in the Wade Center's classroom. The series runs May 1st through May 22nd, 2017.
Although perhaps best known for his children’s stories, The Chronicles of Narnia, C.S. Lewis first began writing fantasy with novels about outer space. Out of the Silent Planet, published in 1938 and the first science fiction book in Lewis’s Space Trilogy, concerns a voyage to Mars. In looking at Lewis’s book, we will consider such questions as: What does humanity’s plight look like from the perspective of other spheres and worlds? Does God’s salvation extend to the stars… and do they need it? Why do our voices of inquiry lie “silent” to the great sea of space? Jay Moses, pastor of Hope Presbyterian Church in Wheaton, will lead the discussion.
These evening discussions are free and open to the public. Advance registration is appreciated but not required. For more information, or to register, contact the Wade Center at 630.752.5908 or firstname.lastname@example.org
