virtual BOOK clubs

Winter 2024 book clubs begin the week of January 15.

CFBU's book clubs are for biblical Christians who want to openly and honestly discuss the issues we face in our culture today, without the fear of being racially shamed or canceled. If that's you, then come and join us!


About the Groups:

Length:  6 weeks, 90 minutes per week

Cost: $35 + the cost of the book

The live experience is limited to 25 participants.

Each book group will have a live discussion leader. Please see times and days listed in descriptions below. Once you have registered and paid, you will receive a confirmation. The week before the group, you will be emailed instructions to join the virtual classroom on Google. Weekly discussions will be held on Zoom.


Book clubs are a time of asking questions and discussing the week‘s reading. Each meeting will be recorded and uploaded to the private virtual Classroom, in case you need to miss a week.

All book clubs also offer a virtual experience, which allows participants to access recordings from the live experience.

Social Justice


Reforming Criminal Justice 

A Christian Proposal


Registration is noopen.


This group will read and discuss Christian attorney, Matthew Martens' book, Reforming Criminal Justice. Martens surveys how Scripture provides several guideposts (accuracy, due process, accountability, impartiality, and proportionality) for loving our neighbors as it relates to criminal justice. Then, drawing on his near quarter century practicing criminal law, he examines how America’s justice system falls short of the biblical standard. This group will discuss the pros and cons of Martens' model and become better equipped to seek true Christian reform within the justice system.

Discussion Leader: Monique Duson

Day/Time: Mondays, 3:30 PM (PT)/6:30 PM (ET)

Dates: January 15, 22, 29, February 5, 12 and 19

The Genesis of Gender

A Christian Theory

Registration is now open.

This group will read and discuss Dr. Abigail Favale's ground-breaking the book, The Genesis of Gender. Weaving personal experience with expert knowledge, Dr. Favale provides an in-depth yet accessible account of the gender paradigm: a framework for understanding reality and identity that has recently risen to prominence. Favale traces the genealogy of gender to its origins in feminism and postmodern thought, describing how gender has come to eclipse sex, and how that shift is reshaping language, law, medicine, sexuality, and our own self-perceptions.

Discussion Leader: Emily Bontrager

Day/Time: Thursdays at 4:30-6:00 PM (PT)/7:30-9:00 PM (ET)

From Heartbroken to Hopeful

Gospel Hope for Parents of Prodigals

To receive information about how to register for this group, email us

This group will read and discuss the book, From Heartbroken to Hopeful. As Christian parents we are called to faithfully train up our children in the love and discipline of the Lord. But what happens when our children grow into adulthood and make the decision to live an opposite way from God's instructions given through their mom and dad? All too often when this happens, parents begin to believe they have failed God and their child. Author, Shirley Johns offers a Gospel-centered approach to help guide parents through this difficult season of life.
