We will be having a study of Adam Hamilton's book,  Making Sense of the Bible.  Pastor Sue has conducted this study at Berkley,  is presently doing it at Troy church, and is now going to lead a study at BHUMC.   The Ladies Bible Study requested this and will be attending in lieu of having their study in each others' homes.   The first session will be Tuesday, October 28th and will continue weekly.

This study is open to all and it would be wonderful to have a good show of women and men attending.   You will need to purchase the book on your own either via Amazon or contact Donna Scott if you would like her to add to an order through Books-A-Million.   It is available in paperback and hard copy, but is not in stock at most bookstores.

A short clip from the jacket of the book follows:
In Making Sense of the Bible,  Adam Hamilton invites us into an honest conversation about the Bible.  The book begins with foundational questions such as,  How and when was the Bible written/  Who decided which books made it into the Scriptures and why?  How literally must we read it?  And, is the Bible ever wrong?
From there,  Hamilton considers the real questions people frequently ask that continue to divide Christians and denominations alike, including:
  • Were Adam and Eve real people?  
  • Why is God so violent in the Old Testament?  
  • Why would Paul command women to keep silent in the church? 
  • How does God view homosexual people?
  • Is the Book of Revelation a guide to the End Times?
In approachable and inviting language, Hamilton addresses these often misunderstood biblical themes leading readers to a deeper appreciation of the Bible so that we might hear God speak through it and find its words to be life-changing and life-giving.

Please talk to Corinne Dowell if you need help getting the book.
