Learning to Read the Bible Off-Center with Wess Daniels

Bible Study sponsored by Friends Center of Guilford College on Thursdays evenings, October 6, 13, 20 and 27. Fellowship Hall, 6:30-8:30 pm.  All are Welcome.

Poverty,Empire and the Bible: Learning to Read the Bible Off-Center.  In this four-week study, we will look at how to approach the biblical texts in ways that open up the text, center the perspectives and stories of those who are poor and marginalized in society.  We will:

  • Look at the intersections of poverty and empire and other forms of oppression and how they pertain to our readings of the Bible.
  • Investigate early Quaker tradition for models of re-reading the Bible.
  • Look at how the Bible provides tools for re-engaging with these critical issues.
