Bible Study on the book Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time

1PM, February 17 thru April 14, 2011

Marcus Borg is one of the most popular Christian scholars today whose books have been widely read by persons of all denominations. His writings provide readers with fresh insights into the person of Jesus and his ministry, and are extremely helpful to those who have done very little serious Bible study and want to better understand and appreciate what lies at the heart of the Christian faith. Thus the title of his first book, "Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time" will be used as text for a nine session series led by Pastor Elstad on Thursday afternoons at 1:00 pm starting February 17 and concluding on April 14. Those planning to attend will find it
helpful to purchase a paperback copy of Dr. Borg’s book and become familiar with the first chapter prior to the start of the sessions. A sign- up sheet will be available in the narthex as of Sunday, January 30. This book is an opportunity to stretch your mind and deepen your faith. As one reviewer stated, “Borg has done a great service for all of us in drawing upon contemporary research to present a fresh and imaginative picture of Jesus that has profound implications for our contemporary faith.”
