Book Discussion: Righteous Gentiles in the Hebrew Bible
By Rabbi Jeffrey K. Salkin

SalkinNoted author and educator Rabbi Jeffrey Salkin was a guest at Trinity earlier this year when he preached on gentiles’ integral connection to the Jewish community. This topic is also the subject of his recently published book, Righteous Gentiles in the Hebrew Bible. Rabbi Salkin provides an informative and inspiring look at the sympathetic non-Israelite characters of the Hebrew Bible and the redemptive relationships they had with the Jewish people. Relying on biblical and extra-biblical sources, he introduces each character, drawing lessons from the life of each. They include gentile midwives who invented civil disobedience, gentile contractor for Solomon’s Temple, and the first gentile mother of Jewish children, among others.
Please join Susan McKinley and Emily Pucker in discussing the book in Trinity’s library. If you did not buy Rabbi Salkin’s book while he was at Trinity, it can be purchased from for $4.55 used; $18.99 new. A Kindle edition is available, too.

Knowing the Place: Exploring the Sacred
with T. S. Eliot's Four Quartets

TSEliotThomas Stearns Eliot came out of St Louis to permanently reside in England in 1914 and become one of literary modernism's founding masters with poems like “The Waste Land.” He became a British subject and in 1927 he was received into the Church of England, describing himself as “classical in literature, royalist in politics, and Anglo-Catholic in religion.”
From 1936-1941 he wrote a series of meditational poems based on Anglican churches and shrines and religious practice: “Burnt Norton,” “East Coker,” “The Dry Salvages,” and “Little Gidding,” collectively known as “Four Quartets.” He published them in 1943, at the height of World War II. They were his last major poetry before his death in 1965 and are regarded as the greatest Anglican and religious poems of the 20th Century. They prompted his receiving the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1948. They are anchored in specific Anglican pilgrimages of devotion and religious and life purpose. In them he most famously indicated we shall not cease our exploring till we have returned to where we started from and know the place for the first time, thoughts quoted in a million sermons. The "Four Quartets" can be read online here.
Come hear a devotional aspect of the author of the poems of the musical “Cats”.
Led by Bill Catus, a friend of Trinity Church— Bill is a member of Columbus First Congregational Church, and sings with its choir and Columbus Symphony Chorus tenor section (along with our own Bob Saik!) He graduated summa cum laude from Wabash College with a Bachelor's degree double major in Chemistry and English. He went on to study Victorian and Modern British literature at J.R.R. Tolkien's alma mater, Exeter College, Oxford University, with emphasis on the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins , T. S. Eliot, Thomas Hardy, W. B. Yeats, and Phillip Larkin. He walked in the Deer Park of C. S. Lewis's Magdalen College, was a reader in the Bodleian Library, where he swore a medieval oath not to set any fires, and enjoyed quaffing English ale at The Eagle and Child Pub, where The Inklings (Tolkien, Lewis, Dorothy Sayers and Charles Williams) met weekly to read aloud their unpublished manuscripts to each other, including “Lord of the Rings” and the Narnia books. Bill then received M.S. and PhD degrees in Chemistry from Northwestern University. He works as an editor at Chemical Abstracts Service.
