Beth Bond Memorial Book Club

EEN Book Club Spring 2024: Good Ground - Volume 2

Join us this spring for our next season of EEN’s Beth Bond Memorial Book Club! This March and April we’ll be reading, contemplating, and discussing Good Ground - Volume 2 by Beth Madison. Our weekly virtual meetings will take place Thursday evenings at 8:00 pm ET/7:00 pm CT and will be hosted by Rev. Tim Olsen, EEN’s Upper Midwest Coordinator. Our first week will kick off with a discussion with author Beth Madison herself! 

Registration for this season of book club has closed. You can view our week one discussion with Beth below!

  • Dr. Beth Madison is a soil scientist and professor at Union University, Jackson, TN. She is also a prolific blogger, Bible teacher, and women's conference speaker. In the volumes of Good Ground, Dr. Madison examines the Christian life through a unique lens. Just as Jesus' parables used agriculture to communicate spiritual truth, Beth uses soil science to celebrate God's amazing creation and encourage a healthy, growing walk with Jesus.

  • Beth Madison delights in being a Christ-follower, wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, and friend. She and Andy have been married for almost 33 years now. They’ve had the privilege of serving as professors at Union University for 22 years. They have their B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from University of Tennessee, University of Kentucky, and Kansas State University, respectively. Beth unearths much joy by combining her training in soil and environmental sciences with her faith through teaching, speaking, and writing. You can find her books at (or Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Target, Walmart, and other online book distributors) and her blog at

    Beth also delights in teaching Sunday School, serving as her church’s librarian, and as a local, state, and national chronic illness patient advocate. But she’s the happiest when she’s out walking in the woods or fields of her family’s farm or riding on the back of her husband’s motorcycle on a road in the country. (And those activities are even more joyous when there’s at least one or three opportunities to stop and savor the smell of the soil samples she’s dug up along the way.)
