Thursday Food for Thought Recap

The library wrapped up its quarterly Thursday Food for Thought program this afternoon with Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, co-directors of SPU’s Center for Relationship Development, reading from their newest book The Good Fight: How Conflict Can Bring You Closer. In addition to discussing the counter-intuitive message of the book, they revealed practical ways in which to use conflict to your advantage. You can purchase a copy of the new book here.

Last week, Rick Steele read a report of his experience of teaching – and learning from – offenders who are trying to live their Christian faith under the conditions of incarceration, written for his work in progress, Ambassadors in Chains: Teaching Christian Prison Literature in a State Prison.

Books featured at Thursday Food for Thought may be available for checkout at the SPU Library. See the previous post for call number information and links to the catalog to view availability.

We had a great turnout this quarter—thanks to all the speakers and those who attended for your participation and the stimulating conversation. The next list of speakers will post on the Thursday Food for Thought website later in the summer, so check for updates shortly.
