Confronting Difficult Texts in the Bible
Sat 1:00pm - 1:50pm
Venue: Convo 06
We call the Bible the Good Book, but some parts of it aren't so good. Or at least they get used in not so good ways. Come join a conversation about developing a progressive, inclusive theology of scripture. We'll apply it to some sample passages that often get used to justify exploitation of the poor, violence against creation, and violence against other human beings. There will also be time for group conversation around passages that are problems for us.
