First Universalists Again Join Secular Bible Study!
In our 2012 First Universalist-Secular Bible Study joint series for Tuesday, January 10 and Tuesday, January 24, "The Book of Job", 1stU and SBS attendees will join SBS Member Lee Snetting in exploring the question of human suffering.
The Book of Job may be the first written book of the Bible, older than Genesis. It has been called the most profound and literary work of the entire Old Testament. The Book of Job is a poetic attempt to do no less than address the problem of evil in the world –- the problem of reconciling the existence of human suffering and injustice with the existence of a loving and just God.
What insights is the author of the Book of Job trying to convey to us about our human condition? About the role of suffering and despair, temptation, fidelity, and providence? Of human understanding and forgiveness?
And how will religious and non-religious readers agree or disagree about ancient and contemporary perspectives on the story of Job?
Lee will guide 1stU-SBS attendees’ introduction to, readings of, and search for answers about this most mythic of Bible texts -- The Book of Job.
Don't miss it -- RSVP "YES" today! Or you'll suffer! :)
