WHAT’S INVOLVED?

The course will involve reading the Bible intensively and inductively in preparation for class, and then attending interactive classes, covering the major contents, the literary structure and the theology of each book that has been studied.

This course will help students begin to understand the Bible in its original context, and thus to be able to apply the Bible more accurately for today.

 

WHEN AND WHERE?

Classes will take place at GraceLife London every second Saturday of the month for 10 months, and students will be expected to complete reading assignments, and submit coursework, all focused on the books of the Bible being studied.

 

WHO CAN STUDY?

The course is open to both men and women who desire to intensively study the Bible.
