The KO Book Club is a forum we utilize to engage with the culture around us through the medium of literature. These discussions will increase our competency, cultural awareness and sensitivity by providing an open forum by which we can learn not only from reading the books of transcendent, thought-provoking authors; but also through the feedback, perspectives and opinions of our study group peers.
“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”
Proverbs 27:17 NIV
Each quarter a book will be selected and a syllabus composed to dissect the book into segments. The syllabus will be constructed in a manner that stimulates discussion of the reading material within the study group. The moderator will host bi-weekly discussions at www.kingdom3m.com/discussion using an open web chat forum that is accessible from computer and mobile devices.
PLEASE NOTE: The open forum web chat is NOT private.
This Quarter’s Book Selection
Join us for this quarter as we dive into “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill; called the “Granddaddy of All Self-Motivational Literature”, it was the first book to boldly ask, “What makes a winner?” The man who asked and listened for the answer, Napoleon Hill, is now counted in the top ranks of the world’s winners himself.
“Think and Grow Rich is founded on the result of more than twenty years of research based on Hill’s close association with a large number of individuals who achieved great wealth during their lifetimes. Hill studied the characteristics of these achievers and developed 16 “laws” of success meant to be applied by people to achieve success” [Wikipedia].
