Carolyn Custis James, author of The Gospel of Ruth: Loving God Enough to Break the Rules will be teaching a course based on her book at Biblical Theological Seminary from April 13-June 22, 2015.
The only time I’ve had the privilege to listen to Carolyn’s teaching it was fantastic.
Just to be clear, this isn’t just a course for women. It will be taught by a woman, focused on a book named after a woman, but God inspired all Scripture to bless both men and women. The book of Ruth isn’t just a book for women, which you will learn more about in the course. Tragically in the church men don’t have enough opportunities to learn from women, and when opportunities are available many men don’t take advantage of them. Scripture is full of examples of godly men learning from godly women. I like to say, “Wise men listen to wise women.”
If you’re a Biblical student, this course would be a great elective (we need more Bible electives!).
If you’re not a student this would be a great one to start with since there are no prerequisites.
If you don’t plan to get a degree, but love to discuss the Bible, I’m sure you’d love this course.
If you register by Feb. 20, you’ll get a free copy of the book.
Carolyn is the author of several other books, including:
Lost Women of the Bible
When Life and Beliefs Collide
Half the Church
Carolyn travels all over the world to speak. This spring she’ll be in Hatfield, PA. I hope you can join her.
