Re: Dr. Chad Pecknold Is Taking Augustine to Twitter

Did you ever wish you could sneak back into a college classroom and dive into a discussion of one of the great Western classics?  Well Dr. Chad Pecknold of Catholic University of America is giving all of us that opportunity. He is an expert on Augustine’s City of God, and he will be hosting Twitter discussions every Thursday night from 8-10 p.m.  Catholic Vote did a great interview with him, which you can find here.  The interview contains important information on how to join in on the discussion.  But you better hurry because the first discussion is this Thursday!

I bought an ebook version of City of God on Amazon for $0.99 and started reading this morning.  I am looking forward to the discussion and expect that it will shed much light on America’s present political and cultural atmosphere.

If you don’t have a Twitter account, it’s real easy to set up, so don’t waste any more time! JG

 

Update

The first Twitter seminar has just concluded, and it went better than I expected.  I have to say it was the best Twitter experience I have ever had.  I encourage you to join in next Thursday, and to help you out, I am posting the reading syllabus below:
