The Genius of Bible Genres
All Bible books are not the same! So don't read them all the same way! This class will help you discover how the genius of each genre can bring remarkable clarity and insight to your Bible reading. Each week will explore the unique aspects of a new genre of scripture as the class studies representative passages.
This course is open to anyone who wants to dig deeper into the rich literature of the Bible. Although each topic stands on its own, class sessions will build upon each other as later classes draw on principles and assumptions established earlier.
