  • I examined the Table of Contents from the Second Edition and read the introductions to each text. I recommend the subset below for reading and discussion at this meeting. I am providing a list [and the page count] of the texts we can discuss, which total 298 pages. If you have more time do so or interest in reading additional texts, I'm suggesting those as the BONUS PICKS (#1: +57 pages; and #2: +53 pages) below. Of course, feel free to read any of the other texts in the volume (many of the letters are just a few pages long), but we will focus our discussion on the primary selections and those who read the bonus picks can brief out any salient points for the rest of us. If you disagree with any of these selections or would like to add something to the primary list for discussion at the meeting, just send a message to the group and we can make a decision then.
