Hello and welcome back to our book club discussion of Shoeless Joe! We only have 1 day left before this ballgame is done and we say good-bye to Shoeless Joe, but I wanted to thank everyone who has been reading and participating in our discussion. I have a lot of fun chatting with you guys and I hope you have enjoyed yourselves as much as I have.
Today we are chatting about baseball and religion. In the book, baseball is often portrayed as a religious experience and is spoken of in religious terms. What are your thoughts about how the book blends religion and baseball?
As always, you can leave your thoughts and opinions on the book and today’s questions in the comments here or you can head to the C. S. Literary Jewelry Facebook page and join the conversation there.
Yesterday, we had our catch-up day and I am pleased to say that we have a bunch of new comments on some of my earlier posts. If you still have catching up to do or want to see what your fellow book club members had to say, you can see our full discussion of Shoeless Joe here.
