On Thursday, January 30, we will finish our study on hypocrisy, with a good set of notes from James Spiegel's book: Hypocrisy: Moral Fraud and Other Vices. We've looked at what philsophers and theologians say about hypocrisy, and we've taken a look at various different scenarios where hypocrisy may or may not be present in a given person's life. The conversation has been stimulating, fun, and hopefully edifying. Tonight, we'll look at what Jesus says about hypocrisy by looking at some texts in the book of Matthew. Please join us at 6pm in the Fireside Room.
Spiegel's book can be purchased at low cost here:
