Scholar Amy-Jill Levine – Our Special Guest
July 23, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
In the Sanctuary.
Amy-Jill Levine is University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies, E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of New Testament Studies, and Professor of Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School and College of Arts and Sciences.
A self-described “Yankee Jewish feminist who teaches in a predominantly Christian divinity school in the buckle of the Bible Belt,” Professor Levine combines historical-critical rigor, literary-critical sensitivity, and a frequent dash of humor with a commitment to eliminating anti-Jewish, sexist, and homophobic theologies.
Amy-Jill Levine will be speaking about The Parable of the Prodigal Son at our 10:00 am service.
We will have a Book Signing (after the service) and the following books available for purchase in our Bookstore:
The Misunderstood Jew: The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus by Amy-Jill Levine
Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi by Amy-Jill Levine
Children’s book – Who Counts?: 100 Sheep, 10 Coins, and 2 Sons by Amy-Jill Levine
