What does the bible say about identity and diversity, inclusion and exclusion, power and privilege, rights and responsibilities, exile and home? How are modern issues of diversity addressed in ancient texts? How do the writings of the Hebrew Bible influence society today in addressing the issues of difference such as gender, socioeconomic, sexual orientation, ability and age? While people from many walks of life make claims to what this Bible says, the Bible is not univocal. Professor Judy Schindler will host this eight-week community course on Wednesdays from 12:30-2:00 p.m. from October 4 through November 29 (No class on November 22 to observe Thanksgiving). Part Two of this course will be offered in the spring.
