Event description

Description

Bible Month is an opportunity for churches and circuits to spend a four-week period engaging with a single biblical book. The primary aim of Bible Month is to improve biblical literacy and engagement within the church, and the response to Bible Month suggests that churches and circuits are keen to help engage with this initiative.

This training day sits alongside the Bible Month Magazine and the resouces on the Methodist website. It will be led by Dr Robin Baker 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.

After the morning's plenary session the afternoon will be in small workshops wihich will explore the book of Jonah with particular focus on either leading worship and preaching, or leading small groups.

Please bring your Bibles and your lunch.
