Joel Baden, The Historical David, November 13-20

Joel Baden is Professor of Hebrew Bible at Yale University and is the author of The Historical David:  The Real Life of An Invented Hero.   David is portrayed in the Hebrew Scriptures as one who had a heart for God.  The Psalms are credited to him.  But the real life guy was ambitious and ruthless.  Dr. Baden reads between the lines to uncover a David far more human and thus more interesting than the idealized character of the Bible.

Peter Enns, The Bible Tells Me So, November 6 – 12

Peter Enns (Blog, Twitter, Facebook) is Abram S. Clemens Professor of Biblical Studies at Eastern University in St. Davids, Pennsylvania.  In this latest book, The Bible Tells Me So:  Why Defending Scripture Has Made Us Unable to Read It, he takes us on a journey of biblical interpretation as well as a faith journey of wrestling with the Bible and most importantly, God.   He writes that the “Bible just as it is isn’t a problem to be fixed.  It’s an invitation.”  With humor and insight, Professor Enns invites us to open our minds as we open the text.
