This week we discuss Chapter 8, The Letter and Church Stories. This chapter discusses what it would have been like to be the recipient of Paul’s letters and the trials of reading Paul outside of cultural context. Our hosts discussed the idea of hearing stories from the Bible within the depth of the recipients’ context, and how that brings a more comforting richness to what can feel like reading someone else’s mail.
Sit in on these vital conversations as our hosts explore the places where faith and life collide. We are currently reading “Inspired: slaying giants, walking on water, and loving the Bible again,” by Rachel Held Evens.
