Heather Gorman: The Story of Scripture
Sometimes it’s easy to lose the forest for the trees when we study our Bibles. In this session, New Testament professor Heather Gorman will offer a big picture view of the story of scripture. We’ll trace the narrative from Genesis to Revelation, with reflections on how we can find our place in the story of God.
