A Sunday Discussion takes place each week, following worship. Having just completed The Challenge of Islam, Our new topic is How we got the Bible. The video session will be offered Sundays February 18 to March 18, 2018. All are welcome.
Dr. Paul L. Maier, the former Russell H. Seibert Professor of Ancient History at Western Michigan University (ret. 2011), leads an accessible five session video discussion of the origins, trustworthiness and veracity of the Bible. While based on scholarship, Dr. Maier avoids theological jargon to focus on ideas such as inspiration by the Holy Spirit allowing multiple authors to state God's truth over a span of about 1500 years, confidence that the Bible cannot lead a person astray spiritually, affirmation that the Bible is authoritative and not corrupted, how the books constituting the Bible came together, and the high human cost of the English Bible.
