[close] This is a place where connoisseurs of dead theologians can banter with fellow admirers of their dusty tomes. So lite up your pipe, grab a strong brew, and your favorite dead guy, and join us as we mine the depths of these forgotten relics.

If you are not so inclined, and want to keep all your dead guys to yourself, I guess that's ok, but I would have thought more of someone who is a member of such an esteemed society as this.

We then meet once a month to discuss the work. This group provides men the opportunity to sharpen their minds in order to think biblically, and to do so with their brothers in Christ.
