Evolution of the Word by Marcus Borg will be offered for the Lenten book study. Rev. Pirazzini will lead a discussion group from 5:45 – 6:45. From Amazon: “Marcus J. Borg, esteemed Bible scholar and bestselling author, shakes up the order of the New Testament as we know it by putting the books in a completely new order—the order in which they were written. By doing so, Evolution of the Word allows us to read these documents in their historical context. For the first time, see how the core ideas of Christianity took shape and developed over time.
Borg surveys what we know of the Jewish community of Jesus followers who passed on their stories orally. Into this context emerges the apostle Paul, whose seven authentic letters become the first collected writings that would later become the New Testament. Borg offers helpful introductions for each book so that as we read through these biblical documents, spanning over a century in time, we see afresh what concerns and pressures shaped this movement as it evolved into a new religion.”
The book study will focus mainly on the Easter story and how it differs among gospels. Sign up for the book study by calling the church office 715-834-2668.
