Freethought Book Club: The Woman's Bible

Book-by-book examination of the Bible by pioneer in women's rights movement places events in their historical context, interprets passages as both allegory and fact, and compares them with myths of other cultures. In the tradition of radical individualism, Elizabeth Cady Stanton's attack on religious orthodoxy represents a political treatise rather than a scholarly work.

Most of us have read Dawkins, Harris, Hitchens and Dennett. These authors are incredible, but by far not the first. Humanists and other Freethinkers are heir to a special legacy of robust and dynamic thought and literature. Every first and third Tuesday we get together to examine a classic work in Freethought.

You don’t need to have already read the book, but it helps. We put together a comprehensive presentation on each of the works so that everyone who shows up gets to discuss the book-but we recommend that you read each one in order to get the most out of the discussion, and because it gives you more to share.

We strive to make these books as convenient and affordable. Each session, there will be an Amazon link to the material, and often links to free online pdf files.

    I agree. If everyone would read at least a few chapters, then we could have more discussion. But Jason has to read excerpts because no one is reading the assigned books.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
