The second South Creake Lecture is to be held at St Mary’s Church South Creake next Friday at 7pm
Dr Jeffrey John, Dean of St Albans will talk on Making Sense of the Bible. Entry is free .
The Rev John writes: ‘Lots of people have been put off reading and studying the Bible by inadequate, usually over-literal, presentations of it in schools, churches, university Christian Unions and elsewhere.
“Making sense of the Bible today involves asking questions about the authors’ original context and intention, which may be very different from the superficial, literal, meaning.
“This lecture explains – entertainingly, I hope – what real Bible study is about, and shows why so far from undermining faith, it strengthens it and creates a thirst to learn more.”
