Reading the Hebrew Bible Afresh
Our Price: $35.00
Some of us have lots of practice reading the Bible in fundamentalist, pre-critical ways - and others have ample practice reading the Bible in critical or skeptical ways. What we need today is a new, fresh approach to the Bible - reading it in post-critical ways, literary rather than literalist, sensitive to history, and focused on an over-arching narrative that focuses on Jesus and his good news. In this 2013, in four stand-alone but integrated sessions, we'll get an overview of the whole Bible from this fresh perspective.
Reading the Hebrew Bible Afresh: We'll dig in to the Pentateuch, the historical books, the poetry and wisdom literature, and the prophets ... in their historical context and with an eye to their meaning today
