Wednesday Night Study
We gather on Wednesday evenings to study, discern and explore on a Zoom call and we’ll saving a seat for you.
Beginning September 16 | Reading The Bible From The Margins
In this class we'll discover how to read the Bible from the perspective of the poor, the oppressed, and victims of discrimination. This introduction to reading and understanding the Bible focuses on perspectives that are often ignored. Here, emphasis is placed on how issues involving race, class, and gender influence our understanding of the Bible. The author shows how “standard” readings of the Bible are not always acceptable to people or groups on the “margins.” The poor and those who are targets of discrimination because of their ethnic group or gender may have quite different insights and understandings of biblical texts that can be of value to all readers.
The book is available for purchase on Amazon. Please contact Pastor Teer if you're unable to obtain a copy.
