December Pick: "The Great Divorce"...

VERY SIMPLY, this story is about a man who, having died, found himself in Purgatory/Hell, waiting for a bus that would take him to the foothills of Heaven. There he would have the opportunity to choose one place or the other. The majority of the book is a collection of the conversations and teachings that he witnessed as people were implored and entreated to choose Heaven; most declined and returned to Hell. A few advanced to the glories unknown. The book's primary message is presented with almost oblique tidiness--"There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, in the end, 'Thy will be done.'"

We will be discussing this book tentatively December 16th, 8:00pm at Stacie Cheney's house.
