DCC Women’s Book Discussion Group: Rachel Held Evan’s Inspired
WHAT: Join us for the next 8 weeks as we read and process together what it means for the bible to be inspired by God and what implications that has for us in our individual faith journey’s.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
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.
