"The Bible is the foundation for faith among followers of Christ in churches around the world. Yet many such Christians never think to ask why this is the case. After all ... How did we get this holy book? Who decided what would and wouldn't be included in it? How do we know it's true? Are there any errors in it? Is it necessary? Is it sufficient? Is it authoritative for my life? How can I understand it?"
"Even as Christians ask and answer such pivotal questions, the culture around us asks even more pressing questions: Isn't the Bible antiquated and outdated? Isn't it chauvinistic and offensive? Isn't it downright deceptive and ultimately dangerous?"
This simulcast (Scripture and Authority in an Age of Skepticism) "will explore answers to critical questions about the Bible in order to discern what place it should (or should not) have in the lives of Christians and the implications those answers have for our lives, our families, and our churches in the culture around us." Early registration can be done at Grace on Sunday mornings (March 19 & 26, April 2) at the kiosk in the main foyer or at the church office during office hours through Tues., April 4, with the cost being $5 per person which includes a study guide.
