The medieval Christians living in the Celtic lands of Great Britain loved to read everything they could get their hands on. The men and women of the monasteries enjoyed philosophy, sermons, stories, and most of all the writings of sacred scripture. I too have enjoyed my own love affair with the Bible for most of my adult life. There are many who have checked out of the scriptures because, “It is used against certain groups” Or, “ How is this pre-scientific book of any value?” We have all heard or spoken things like this. I have too! Perhaps this is an opportunity to engage the scriptures in ways we have not before. This is also a safe place to ask questions, share different points of view, and to sit with both new insights and some lingering questions.
Please read The Acts of the Apostles before class begins. Use any good English translation you like. However, if it is a translation which is well known to you, it may prove helpful to try another one.
Here are a couple of quotes Scott shares from two of his favorite authors.
"By reading the scriptures I am so renewed that all nature seems renewed around me and with me. The sky seems to be a pure, a cooler blue, the trees a deeper green. The whole world is charged with the glory of God and I feel fire and music under my feet.”
~ Thomas Merton
“The more I have read the Bible and studied the life of Jesus, the more I have become convinced that Christianity spreads best not through force but through fascination.”
~ Shane Claiborne
