“Best-seller” exhibit opens Sunday

News | July 1, 2020

The Bible remains the best-selling book of all time. Many people have also suggested that it is the least-read bestseller. It is not unusual to talk with people who have at some time tried to “read the Bible beginning to end” only to find that it is not an easy task; most give up.

An exhibit will be open in the Lower Commons throughout the month of July. It will offer examples of Bibles that are especially suited for each approach, tools that make it easier to pursue each approach, and illustrations of the ways that the various approaches to Bible study have emerged over centuries of Bible study and production.

Texts from the Dead Seas Scrolls, illuminations from the medieval period, devotional Bibles of various types, and many useful tools for Bible study will be displayed with explanations that offer a self-guided tour through many of the dimensions of this topic that will be studied in the video classes and discussions.

Exhibition in July:

▶ Weekdays, 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.

▶ Wednesdays, 7-8:30 p.m.

▶ Sundays, 1-3 p.m.

Other times by arrangement, just ask! Questions? Message Peter Pettit at ppettit@stpaulqc.org.
