Seeking Christian men that enjoy fellowship, study of the Bible, reading classic and modern literature and discussing and perhaps debating the same.
The Bible and Literary Society of North Augusta is formed in the intellectual and fraternal tradition of Lewis and Tolkien and their fellowship. Iron sharpens iron.

I suggest as the first book covered, after the administrative work of setting offices is complete, Interpreting Scripture with the Great Tradition: Recovering the Genius of Premodern Exegesis.
From the author: “The rise of modernity, especially the European Enlightenment and its aftermath, has negatively impacted the way we understand the nature and interpretation of Christian Scripture. In this introduction to biblical interpretation, Craig Carter evaluates the problems of post-Enlightenment hermeneutics and offers an alternative approach: exegesis in harmony with the Great Tradition. Carter argues for the validity of patristic Christological exegesis, showing that we must recover the Nicene theological tradition as the context for contemporary exegesis, and seeks to root both the nature and interpretation of Scripture firmly in trinitarian orthodoxy.”
