Lenten Bible "Detox": Study of Deuteronomy 15 led by Norman Gottwald

Lenten Bible "Detox"

February 25, 2021, 7:30pm Eastern Time

Each Lent, CLBSJ focuses our attention on the misuse of the Bible to promote and justify violence and oppression. All are welcome on this journey of healing and reclaiming.

In this session, CLBSJ co-founder Dr. Norman Gottwald will continue the exploration of “the poor will always be with you” by looking at Hebrew Testament parallels in Deuteronomy 15:11 and related texts.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Gottwald, Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies at New York Theological Seminary and co-founder of the Center and Library for the Bible and Social Justice, is a pioneer in the use of critical social theory and method in biblical studies.
