THE BEREAN CLUB!
When the weather is cold and nippy it is a great time to time to curl up someplace warm and read a good book. Or maybe you are a bit under the weather and bored, maybe a good movie would let you know God is there. If you are indoors avoiding the heat, grab a nice cool lemonade and enjoy listening to some tapes!
The Berean Club was formed in hopes that people would take time to read or listen to inspirational materials and then take the time to discuss what they learned with others. Some people are wondering what might be good and the materials on this list are selected to challenge. Just like each of us, the media you read or listen to is the product of the one making it and not necessarily the opinion of "CHAIN."
In most cases we hope you can contact your local library and find the materials for free. Then join the fun. The Berean Club will have discussion groups if enough people want to discuss a certain book or tape. The Berean Book Club benefits are for members but anyone, including you, are welcome to get the book at their library and join in the discussions. (You will find how to contact the Berean club after the selections)
Members can request anything on the list and it will be sent to them when available. The only cost is the postage required to send it to the next person on the list or back to CHAIN when you are finished with the materials. If you have any of the materials listed on the pages and would like to add more copies to the Berean Club, please send them to the CHAIN PO Box listed under "Contacts" on the main CHAIN page.
