Seeker’s Circle Book Club: How the Bible Actually Works

October 17, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Peter Enns, evangelical Bible scholar, blogger and podcast host of The Bible for Normal People, and author of The Bible Tells Me So and The Sin of Certainty, explains that the Bible is not an instruction manual or rule book but a powerful learning tool that nurtures our spiritual growth by refusing to provide us with easy answers but instead forces us to acquire wisdom.

Seeker’s Circle Book Club meets six times a year at the Washington County Free Library in downtown Hagerstown, 7:00 pm Study Room 333, reading and discussing books that describe the religious life and traditions of several of the world’s religions and current issues in interfaith dialogue. Inquiries to Gwen Skrabak, 301-797-1603 or Kathleen O’Connell, ko01@washcolibrary.org / 301-739-3250 ext. 166. Books can be purchased online or, if available, borrowed from the library.  Download a flyer.
