How Does the Bible Mean @ CMC in Glenwood Springs
Feb 11 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Class Description:

Historical writing tells us what we would have seen if we had been there. But the bible believes that we pretty much would have missed the whole thing if we had been there. (Most everyone else did.) So the bible uses a very different style, providing no ordinary evidence for its claims and requiring what it calls spiritual discernment to understand its message. For those interested, it can be helpful to know this communication style: How doe the bible mean? (For a preview of the course, see: http://heritage.utoronto.ca/content/bible-and-english-literature- northrop-frye-full-lecture-2)
