Thursday 13th December, 12.30 – 2.30pm at LCI

The LCI Book Group is a book club for theological books. We meet to discuss a particular title over a bite to eat. Everybody is welcome, you don’t need to have read the book being discussed in advance, in fact after the session we hope that you might want to borrow it from the study centre.

At December’s book group we will be looking at The Jewish Journey 4000 years in 22 objects from the Ashmolean Museum by Rebecca Abrams.

Rebecca Abrams is an award-winning author of both fiction and non-fiction. Her most recent book, Touching Distance, won the MJA Open Book Award and was shortlisted for the McKitterick Prize for Literature.

The Jewish Journey tells the history of the Jewish people from antiquity to modern times through 22 objects from the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, brought together here for the first time. Many of the objects are little-known treasures and all 22 have remarkable stories. Spanning 4000 years of history and covering 14 different countries, the objects trace the evolution of Jewish life and culture from its earliest beginnings in Ancient Mesopotamia through time and space to the modern day.
