Progressive Christianity Reading Group

by | Jan 19, 2023

The Progressive Christianity Reading Group begins discussion of a new book.   New participants are always welcome to this online weekly gathering.

John Dominic Crossan’s The Power of Parable: How Fiction By Jesus Became Fiction About Jesus is a provocative look at the Gospels. Crossan begins by observing that the parabolic stories told by Jesus seem remarkably similar to the resurrection stories about Jesus. Could Jesus’ use of parables have inspired the Gospel writers to create meaningful, metaphorical stories about Jesus to help them explain who he really was?

One copy of each book is available in the church office.

Group meets online 1pm-2pm, Thursdays Feb. 16, 23, March 2, 9 and 16th.
