The Good Book?
In January, we start our new sermon series, which we’re calling The Good Book. We’ll be asking whether the world’s most popular, bestselling book (the Bible) is good or grotesque?
Is it worth reading, or maybe even making reading it one of your New Year’s resolutions?
- GQ magazine say no. They put it in a list of classic books ‘not worth reading‘.
- Sir Ian McKellen says, “I’ve often thought the Bible should have a disclaimer in the front saying this is fiction.”
- Comedian Ricky Gervais says, “It’s almost as if the Bible was written by racist, sexist, homophobic, violent, sexually frustrated men, instead of a loving God.”
Clearly there’s a lot of misunderstanding about the Bible. In this series we want to put that right, as we make the case for The Good Book. We want to inspire you to read it. We want to equip believers to defend it.
The series will run over 5 weeks, on the following topics:
6th Jan – Unreliable?
13th Jan – Unscientific? (With guest speaker, Calum Miller)
20th Jan – Arrogant?
27th Jan – Bloodthirsty?
3rd Feb – Homophobic? (With guest speaker, Sam Allberry)
Each sermon will be followed by a Q&A session after the service, with the speaker.
