In this 8-week study we will (re)introduce ourselves to the amazing, wonderful, wacky, troubling, mysterious and glorious gift of the Bible. This will not be your traditional Bible study. Rather it will be a journey together guided by the following book:
Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again – by Rachel Held Evans
“If the Bible isn’t a science book or an instruction manual, then what is it? What do people mean when they say the Bible is inspired? When Rachel Held Evans found herself asking these questions, she began a quest to better understand what the Bible is and how it is meant to be read. What she discovered changed her, and it will change you too.
Drawing on the best in recent scholarship and using her well-honed literary expertise, Evans examines some of our favorite Bible stories and possible interpretations, retelling them through memoir, original poetry, short stories, soliloquies, and even a short screenplay. Undaunted by the Bible’s most difficult passages, Evans wrestles through the process of doubting, imagining, and debating Scripture’s mysteries. The Bible, she discovers, is not a static work but is a living, breathing, captivating, and confounding book that is able to equip us to join God’s loving and redemptive work in the world.”
