Welcome to the April 2018 edition of the Christian Fiction Book Club Connection. Thanks for stopping by! Whether you’re a pastor or ministry leader thinking of forming a book discussion group at your church, a current member of a book club, or simply a fan of Christian fiction hoping to connect with other readers, you’re in the right place. Please consider subscribing to my blog so you won’t miss future posts.
Today I’m providing information on Christian fiction discussions scheduled to take place around the web this month. I’m also featuring a handful of recently released Christian fiction titles for which a discussion guide is available, either included in the book itself or on the author’s or publisher’s web site.
Online Discussions Coming Up This Month
The ACFW Book Club‘s April selection is Blow Out the Candles and Say Goodbye by Linda Glaz. You can subscribe to the group’s e-mail list now, by following the instructions on their Web site, to be sure not to miss any announcements or discussion questions.
By the Book is an in-person book discussion club that has introduced an online Facebook-based discussion option. To join in online, like the By the Book Facebook page, and be sure to check back there periodically for any discussion that may not have made it into your news feed. April’s selection is The Masterpiece by Francine Rivers.
For April, the Christian Fiction Devourers group on Goodreads is discussing Just Look Up by Courtney Walsh AND The Five Times I Met Myself by James L. Rubart. Grab your copies and head on over to the discussion forum to check in with others who are in the midst of reading these books.
