The Biblical Story and the Western Story (Phoenix)

Presenter: Michael Goheen
October 3 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm MDT
Redemption Church, 2150 E Southern Ave
Tempe, AZ 85282

The Bible isn't a set of separate books or disjointed principals: it's a compelling drama that narrates the true story of the world. It gives meaning to all of life and a vision for the flourishing of creation. In these lectures, Michael Goheen will show how the Bible unfolds in six "acts"--from creation to restoration -- and tells the story of how God is on a mission to renew all things through Christ.

Goheen will show how the Biblical Story provides a life-giving contrast to the false stories of our time and the idols of culture. He will argue that we need to see the Bible as a unified, authoritative, story if we are going to be disciples, and make disciples, who contribute to the flourishing of God’s world.

This event will be held in partnership with the Surge Network.
