Event description

Description

The Bible Month Training Day that was led by Dr Robin Baker at Whitstable last month was such a resounding success and so positively received that the DMLN are looking to offer a similar day, but this time more centrally, within the South East district. Those who attended the first day found Prof Baker’s insight and knowledge into the Middle Eastern literature and culture, and the book of Jonah in particular, informative and helpful. The value extends beyond the Book of Jonah to a more general understanding of biblical texts and how we can use them well.

Dr Robin Baker is Professor of Old Testament and Ancient Near Eastern Studies at the University of Winchester. He is a Fellow of University College London, and a Visiting Scholar at Sarum College. Robin's research is in the Old Testament and the religious environment of the Ancient Near East. More broadly, he is interested in the reception and interpretation of the Old Testament in the Early Church. Robin's most recent book is, Hollow Men, Strange Women: Riddles, Codes and Otherness in the Book of Judges, published by Brill in 2016, and articles he has written are published in, among others, the Journal of Biblical Literature and Vetus Testamentum. He is currently writing a book on the Kingship of Christ.

The training day on Saturday 12 May will be held at Haywards Heath Methodist Church. The morning's plenary session will provide both an overview and a deeper understanding of the Book of Jonah in its historical and literary context, while the afternoon will be in small workshops which will explore the book of Jonah with particular focus on either leading worship and preaching, or leading small groups.

Bring your bibles and your lunch. There is no charge to attend.

There are a limited number of spaces available and the costs to offer this day are not inconsequential. If there is insufficient interest the day will probably be cancelled. I would strongly recommend that you check your diary, block out the space, book now and take advantage of this opportunity.
