I would like to invite you to join me in an upcoming Bible study: Understanding the Land of the Bible. This eight week exploration will delve into the geographical, historical and cultural backgrounds of the Bible.
The Bible’s historians, prophets and poets were all intimately familiar with the world in which they lived. They wrote about their world expecting their readers to also be familiar with it.
Living thousands of years and miles away from those biblical writers in an extremely different culture we must take the time to learn about their world so that we might more fully understand their writings. As we understand the Bible in its context, we can better understand our contemporary world and its current struggles.

The materials used in this course will be a Bible and the Introductory Study Package from Biblical Backgrounds. The cost of materials is $29 plus shipping and handling. Please order these as soon as possible to receive before the first class.
Space is limited to the first 25 people who respond to me either in person or via email.
The class will be taught at the offices of Christ-Life Ministries at 2980 99th Street, Urbandale, IA 50322, on Thursday from 7:30-9:00 PM, November 10th until January 12th (class will not meet November 25th or December 15). If you are not able to attend these first 8 weeks, I will teach this class again in the Spring.
I hope to hear from you soon.
Grace and peace.
