Theologian Trevor Dennis leads a new and exciting autumn course, taking place on Tuesday evenings at 7pm.

Tuesday 24 September 

  • War poems for our times - the searing, disturbing beauty of Lamentations and Psalm 137.

Tuesday 8 October   

  • An exquisite story of famine, migration, immigration, renewal, empowerment, and above all love - Ruth the Moabite.

Tuesday 15 October 

  • Is there sexism in the Bible? Undoubtedly. Is there antisemitism in the Bible? Let's find out.

Tuesday 22 October   

  • The last laugh - Rachel and Laban's household gods (a wonderful example of women's humour); the case of the midwives, Shiphrah and Puah, and a joke hidden in the Hebrew; the hilarious tale of Jonah, with a very serious and challenging question at the end.
