Our small groups will return from 11th January, meeting Mondays from 10:30-12:00 and Wednesdays – the time changes to 6:30-8:00pm.
We’re going to start by looking at a book together for the first six weeks – ‘The Heart of it All‘ by Sam Wells. It’s a book that gives an overview of the whole bible. Please consider purchasing a copy of the book (purchase online from Eden Books here), and then each week we’ll read at home a short section of the book and then discuss together. All are welcome to join, regardless of whether you’ve been part of the group before.
In The Heart of It All, the Canterbury Press Lent book for 2020, Samuel Wells simplifies the Bible’s complexity and presents the entire sweep of its narrative in eighteen key themes.
Although its contents range from history to poetry, law, narrative, letters and even apocalyptic literature, at the Bible’s heart are relationships between God, creation, Jesus, the Church, the Spirit and the Kingdom. Samuel Wells argues that this provides a lens through which the whole Bible can be understood.
Rooted in the best of contemporary biblical theology and scholarship, The Heart of It All will deepen understanding of the Bible and increase confidence in reading it.
There’s a video here of Sam Wells talking about the book – but note, it’s an hour long , so one to watch with a cup of tea!
Looking forward to meeting up and starting this exploration together,
