NIC Book Club

Nic Book Club Banner Only Kneeling

The Discipleship Task Force's NIC Book Club was created to encourage conference-wide book discussions to nurture our spirit in growing as disciples of Jesus Christ. Suggested readings will be offered. Participants are welcome to read and reflect individually or join a group discussion. Group discussions will be held in-person and via Zoom when appropriate.


Lent 2022 Book Choice - Kneeling with Giants by Gary Neal Hansen

What kind of experience do you have in your prayer life?  Is it full of joy or does it fall flat?  Gary Neal Hansen, author of our first selection for the NIC Book Club, suggests if your experience is the latter, conceivably you haven’t found a prayer method that you really connect with.  In his book, Kneeling with Giants, he offers a wide range of approaches to prayer that are all classics.  What better time than Lent to search out a deeper relationship with the God who so loved the world…?  The Discipleship Task Force has arranged for 4 recorded sessions of a pilot group of NIC members with Hansen to help guide your reading of the book.  You may use these videos with a group from your church, cluster, or individually.  Conference groups will also be available to join. 

For some mysterious reason, God’s work does not get done without our prayers.  Join the Discipleship Task Force in dropping to our knees.

Walking With Giants

Kneeling with Giants: Learning to Pray with History’s Best Teachers (InterVarsity Press, 2012) explores ten classic ways that Christians practice the life of prayer.  Each one is deeply rooted in a major branch of Christianity.  Hansen states "If Christian faith is really a relationship, then you and God need better ways to spend time together." We will be broadening our prayer lives with several methods used by the masters while growing more in love with God. This is an opportunity to learn and spend more time with our great God who has wonderful things in store for us.
