Light of the World: A Beginner’s Guide to Advent
Mondays November 29-December 21
Rev Mary Beth Hardesty-Crouch
Advent is not only the perfect time to read the story of the birth of Jesus; it’s also a great time to dive deeper into the biblical texts that surround the event.
In Light of the World: A Beginner’s Guide to Advent, author, professor, and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine shows how the Gospel narratives connect to the Old Testament; highlights the role of women in first-century Jewish culture; and emphasizes the importance of Mary’s visitation, the census, the stable, the star of Bethlehem, and the flight to Egypt.
The book by Amy-Jill Levine is available in hard copy or for download on Amazon and other major booksellers. Follow this link to purchase your copy.
Led by Pastor Mary Beth Hardesty-Crouch.
