About the event
In his book, Evil Geniuses: The Unmaking of America: A Recent History, the author Kurt Andersen identifies eight “truth claims” made by the political right that champion aggressive self-sufficiency and selfsecurity at the expense of the community. In his book, “Ancient Echoes”, Dr. Walter Brueggemann responds from a biblical perspective to the eight ‘claims’ of the political right. He asserts that the echoes of biblical faith reveal that right-wing ‘truth claims’ contradict our scripture. Pastor Dan will begin our five-week, in person discussion using Brueggemann’s book, Ancient Echoes, on Sunday October 15th from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. in the lounge. In preparing for the class, you may want to read both books. Andersen’s book will give you the context in which Dr. Brueggemann responds. My primary focus will be on the material in his book, Ancient Echoes. We’ll look at the bible stories and verses that support Brueggemann’s argument and reflect on his thoughts as presented in the book. Please join us for our discussion.
