Wednesdays at Noon, December 1-22 via Zoom
Engaging Amy-Jill Levine's excellent book, Light of the World: A Beginner's Guide, Mark Zaineddin will help us dig into the traditional Advent bible stories through historical and religious contexts in which they were written and heard.
There is no one I would rather have guide me through Advent and the first chapters of Matthew and Luke than Amy-Jill Levine. With her characteristic insight, graciousness, humor, and deep respect for these biblical writings, she makes the wonder-filled stories of John's and Jesus' births come alive. The Gospels' tidings of comfort and joy become sources of rich contemplation for anyone who reads this book. - Matthew L. Skinner, professor of New Testament, Luther Seminary
Watch Amy-Jill’s 1.5-minute intro.
Purchase the book at your local bookstore or order copy here.
Join the conversation whether or not you have read the chapters each week. Doing so, maybe Advent and Christmas will look a little different this year!
