Join Pastor Helgen to discuss this fascinating book by the late Rachel Held Evans, whose own quest for understanding changed her and could change you, too. Among the questions she explores are: If the Bible isn’t a science book or an instruction manual, what is it? What does it mean to say the Bible is inspired? How is it meant to be read? In answering these and other questions, Evans examines favorite Bible stories and possible interpretations, retelling them through memoir, original poetry, short stories, soliloquies, and even a short screenplay. Undaunted by the Bible’s most difficult passages, she wrestles through the process of doubting, imagining, and debating Scripture’s mysteries. The Bible, she discovers, is not a static work, but a living, breathing, captivating, and confounding book able to equip us to join God’s loving and redemptive work in the world. Books are available online and in some local bookstores. Note: This study will repeat at West in the spring.
