Just the Best Literature

Philadelphia Church of God

Just the Best Literature is designed to inspire you to not only read printed books, but to read only the very best books. Besides books, host Dennis Leap will lead discussions on other current literature such as essays and important articles. Just the Best Literature is the biggest international book club you could ever belong to—for just the price of a few books, which you get to keep. Tuning in will help you develop the skills necessary to gain more value from what you are currently reading. Dennis Leap will give you tips on how to read more effectively, how to analyze what you read, how to think more deeply about what you read, and how to discuss books in scintillating discussions with your friends and family. Come join the conversation.
