Journey Through the Bible

Bible 101

WEDNESDAYS, 6:30, ROOM 356 (THROUGH MARCH 29)
 
While we regularly think of the Bible as a key resource for our understanding of Christian faith, we also find it difficult to read and even harder understand. For many of us, it is often little more than a loosely structured anthology of inspiring, religious, and spiritual thoughts to which we turn occasionally for comfort, guidance and direction. Perhaps fewer of us are aware that the Bible actually narrates a story that purports to be a history with significance for all people. It is this larger story that has shaped the church throughout its history and held together different expressions of religious and spiritual life in the Christian tradition.
 
This class, led by theologian in residence Dr. John Franke, will provide an overview of the major developments and plot twists in the biblical story.
