Biblical Narrative Series

The Biblical Narrative Series takes participants on a journey through the Bible alongside our biblical studies students.  This monthly series tells the story of the Bible through ten evening lectures which provide an overview for understanding the Bible as a whole.  These lectures will also explore the themes & setting of the books which make up each part of the story.  The Biblical Narrative Series is designed to be open to the public and accessible to all types of learners.  
No experience or outside assignments required
