Great Books


“The only palliative is to keep the clean sea breeze of the centuries blowing through our minds, and this can be done only by reading old books.” -- C.S. Lewis


“Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of the truth.” -- St. John Paul II


BCYC Immersion’s Great Books program gives students the opportunity to start to enter the great conversation about the fundamental truths of human existence that thinkers have been engaged in for centuries. Professors lead students through some of the most engaging and ennobling texts in history — from the ancient world to the 20th century.




"Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood." -- Acts 20:28
