Our focus for the summer:
Lies My Preacher Told Me: An Honest Look at the Old Testament by Brent Strawn

Brent Strawn, a Professor of Old Testament and Professor of Law at Duke University, outlines the most common misconceptions about the Old Testament, from its relevance to Christians to perceptions of God’s personality. With his daring book title, it is not meant to discredit teachers or preachers. Rather, Strawn shows how vast and complex the Bible is, which can sometimes lead to mistakes and common misconceptions. Strawn’s book is meant for discovery through discussion surrounding these stories and laws that were written thousands of years ago, centuries before Christ, and how they are enriching modern Christianity.
