Banned Questions about the Bible with Rev. Carl

Rev. Carl
Check below to register
Tuesdays, 3/7, 3/14, 3/21, 3/28, 4/4, 4/11 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm (Room 113) (64a)

Explore the questions mainstream scholars ask about the Bible that aren’t always asked in religious communities. Feel more equipped to read the Bible for yourself: basic biblical background and history, diverse methods of biblical interpretation, major content and themes. Compare modern readings with those of the Bible’s earliest interpreters.

There are no reading assignments for this course. However, if you particularly want a supplemental textbook to supplement this class, I recommend “The Bible: A Historical & Literary Introduction” by Bart Ehrman (Oxford UP) and/or "The New Interpreter's Study Bible" (Abingdon Press).
