A Lenten Book Study Did God Kill Jesus?: Searching for Love in History’s Most Famous Execution by Tony Jones -- VIA ZOOM
Monday evenings // March 21 – April 11 // 7 - 8 p.m. // via Zoom
Join Pastor Brandon as we explore the meaning behind Jesus’ crucifixion and the many ways that Christians have tried to make sense of this tragic part of the gospel story. Using Tony Jones’ Did God Kill Jesus?, we will learn about different views of God’s saving work on the cross, also known as atonement. From the book description: “How we understand the cross reflects directly what kind of God we worship. By letting go of the wrathful God who cannot stand to be in our presence unless he pretends to see Jesus in our place, we discover the biblical God who reaches out to love and embrace us while ‘we were yet sinners.’ Jones offers a positive, loving, inclusive interpretation of the faith that is both challenging and inspiring.” Class participants are encouraged to purchase a copy of the book from their preferred bookseller.
