An Online Class

Dates: Sept. 26-Oct. 21, 2016

During these four weeks, we will explore the problem of violence in its many forms as it appears and seems to be accepted and sometimes even promoted in Scripture. The goal of the class will be to offer ways of reading passages that contain violent language and imagery in order to understand them as part of the "good news," God's word for us.

The class will be self-paced and available for participants to engage with the instruction at their own convenience, i.e., offered asynchronously, no set times that you need to sit in front of your computer.
