You’re Invited! The Misunderstood Bible Project: A Talk

Michelangelo’s Moses

The Bible. It’s weird. Let’s talk. If you happen to be in Charlottesville, VA and free for (a free) lunch and talk on September 19 (Tues), c’mon by the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities (conference room)! I look forward to discussing my work for The Misunderstood Bible (forthcoming, Oxford University Press) with those able to attend. Kristin Swenson flyer VFH talk 2017

Here’s a little more info:

The Bible is a really weird book, no matter what a person believes or doesn’t, biblical scholar Kristin Swenson observes.

Author of Bible Babel: Making Sense of the Most Talked About Book of All Time Dr. Swenson discusses the challenges, pitfalls, and promise of writing a forthcoming book (Oxford UP) that concerns what’s weird about and in the Bible.

In the process, she’ll talk about writing as an academic for a nonspecialist audience on a topic of frequently impassioned interest. And she’ll show some of the highlights of her research for this book.

Like, Moses, what’s with the horns?
