A Literary Expedition is a new initiative by Apologetics Canada to bring like-minded people together virtually to explore ideas in their historical context. We will read and discuss books together—some well-known, others rather obscure—and occasionally get some help from experts along the way. Without a destination in mind, we will see where the intellectual journey takes us.
