Wednesday Zoom Book Group
Be Inspired this Lent!
You’re invited to join Linda+ for a noontime Zoom book group on Wednesdays in Lent beginning March 1 and continuing through March 29. We will discuss Rachel Held Evans’ 2018 book, Inspired: Slaying Dragons, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again.
From the author’s website: If the Bible isn’t a science book, instruction manual, or position paper, then what is it? New York Times bestselling author Rachel Held Evans invites readers on a journey of rediscovery as she explores the magic of the Bible, engaging the old, familiar stories in new ways that honor the past and enlighten the present.
Drawing upon recent scholarship and literary analysis, Evans creatively retells our favorite Bible stories, explaining their contexts and possible interpretations, and then connects these ancient stories to our present-day ones. Using her well-honed literary instincts and experience in both evangelical and mainline Protestant traditions, Evans discovers a way of understanding that avoids noncommittal liberalism on one hand and strident literalism on the other. Readers are invited to fall in love with Scripture all over again without checking their intellect–or their imaginations–at the door.(https://rachelheldevans.com/inspired)
Join us as we discover (or rediscover) the wonder and challenge of Scripture through the eyes of one who has wrestled with its questions, tensions, and challenges and learned to love the Bible anew. Please contact Linda+ for more information and to sign up.
