PA3 Book Club April Meeting

Friday, April 24, 2015 - 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Location: East Pyne Seminar Room 111
Organized by: Linsay Hiller

*************RSVP Required***********

Good Evening!

I'm excited to announce that the plans for our April book club meeting (April 24th at 7pm) are complete. Ian Caldwell, the New York Times bestselling co-author of "The Rule of Four," will be joining us to discuss his new book, "The Fifth Gospel." The details and information about the book are below.

Because of the anticipated popularity of this meeting and a desire to keep the group small enough to have a good discussion, the group size will be limited to 15. Book club members who regularly attend meetings will be given priority; after those members have RSVP'd, I will take RSVPs first come first serve. For those of you who regularly attend meetings, please try to RSVP by next Thursday, April 2nd.

See you soon!


Book: The Fifth Gospel by Ian Caldwell
Date: Friday, April 24th
Time: 7pm
Location: East Pyne Room 111

"The Fifth Gospel" - from Amazon:

A lost gospel, a contentious relic, and a dying pope’s final wish converge to send two brothers—both Vatican priests—on an intellectual quest to untangle Christianity’s greatest historical mystery.

Ten years ago, Ian Caldwell and Dustin Thomason’s The Rule of Four became a literary phenomenon that sold nearly two million copies in North America and was hailed by critics as “ingenious…profoundly erudite” (The New York Times), “compulsively readable” (People), and “an exceptional piece of scholarship” (San Francisco Chronicle). Now, after a decade of painstaking primary research, Ian Caldwell returns with a masterful new thriller that confirms his place among the most ambitious popular storytellers working today.

In 2004, as Pope John Paul II’s reign enters its twilight, a mysterious exhibit is under construction at the Vatican Museums. A week before it is scheduled to open, its curator is murdered at a clandestine meeting on the outskirts of Rome. That same night, a violent break-in rocks the home of the curator’s research partner, Father Alex Andreou, a Greek Catholic priest who lives inside the Vatican with his five-year-old son. When the papal police fail to identify a suspect in either crime, Father Alex, desperate to keep his family safe, undertakes his own investigation. To find the killer he must reconstruct the dead curator’s secret: what the four Christian gospels—and a little-known, true-to-life fifth gospel known as the Diatessaron—reveal about the Church’s most controversial holy relic. But just as he begins to understand the truth about his friend’s death and its consequences for the future of the world’s two largest Christian Churches, Father Alex finds himself hunted down by someone with a vested stake in the exhibit—someone he must outwit to survive.

At once a riveting intellectual thriller, a feast of biblical history and scholarship, and a moving family drama, The Fifth Gospel is “a story of sacrifice, forgiveness, and redemption. Peppered with references to real-life people, places, and events, the narrative rings true, taking the reader on an emotional journey nearly two thousand years in the making” (Library Journal, starred review).
