S16C11 A "Run" Through the Bible

Description: Join in on an informative and enjoyable "run" through the entire Bible, including the Apocrypha, exploring the uniqueness and messages of each book. We'll begin with how the Bible came to be, then explore the context, themes, highlights, stories and issues of each book. We will identify persons you want to know and some that you may wish that you didn't! If you've read and studied portions of the Bible, this course will help you see how it all fits together and perhaps whet your appetite to read even more. If you don't know much about the Bible, this course will help you see what all the fuss is about. This will be a fast moving "hit the highlights" and "help me make sense of it" run through this amazing book, which is important to people of faith as well as to any literate person in our society.

Suggested Reading: Participants will need to bring a Bible or two, including one with an Apocrypha, if possible. Various translations will enhance the class.

Instructor: LLI member Mary Cline Detrick is an ordained semi-retired minister in the Church of the Brethren, who has developed and has been leading eight-hour "Bible Marathons" for six years. She offers a relaxed yet scholarly approach to the Bible with humor and insights growing out of her 49 years of continuing Bible studies, since graduating from Bethany Theological Seminary with Masters of Religious Education and Master of Divinity Degrees.
