 ”Making Sense of The Bible”

Christianity 101 and Life Connections Classes

In Making Sense of the Bible, Adam Hamilton invites us into an honest conversation about the Bible. The book begins with foundational questions such as, How and when was the Bible written? Who decided which books made it into the scriptures and why? How literally must we read it? And, Is the Bible ever wrong?  From there, Hamilton considers the real questions people frequently ask that continue to divide Christians and denominations alike.

 In approachable and inviting language, Hamilton addresses these often misunderstood biblical themes leading readers to a deeper appreciation of the Bible so that we might hear God speak through it and find its words to be life-changing and life-giving.
Topics include:
•Were Adam and Eve real people?
• Why is God so violent in the Old Testament?
• Why would Paul command women to
“keep silent in the church”?
• Is Jesus the only way to salvation?
• How does God view homosexual people?
• Is the Book of Revelation a guide
to the End Times?
Christianity and World Religions:
Wrestling With Questions People Ask 
Forum Class
Christianity and World Religions: Wrestling With Questions People Ask is a video-based small-group study and outreach program that explores four major world religions- Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Judaism – and compares the beliefs of each with those of Christianity. This six-week study deals openly and honestly with questions people ask about other religions, including why we should believe the claims of Christianity over those of other faiths. As part of the study, author and presenter Adam Hamilton interviews a religious leader from each tradition. He treats the world religions with great respect, recognizing the unique contributions of each.  In examining these major world religions and the beliefs of their followers, the Reverend Hamilton urges us as Christians to build bridges with others so that we might grow in our faith, seek peace in our world, love our neighbor, and find positive ways to share the gospel.
