Being Biblical Readers in a Pluralistic World
Led by The Rev. Dr. Patricia Dutcher-Walls, Professor of Hebrew Scripture and Dean of Studies at the Vancouver School of Theology
Wednesday, May 8th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m
What core questions help define the identity of a Biblical people and Biblical readers today? What values and attitudes are the marks of a Biblical people in an age of pluralism and diversity? This workshop will help participants understand and engage ways of reading Old Testament texts that reflect the changing and pluralistic world in which we find ourselves. After an initial lecture and discussion, participants will get some hands-on practice in small groups to explore some new perspectives on reading the Bible.
