Lent 2013 — Advanced Notice

Following on with BACI’s series of Bible Studies for Lent, BACI is currently preparing a study on The Bible in the Life of the Church‘s final topic, Gender Justice.

The study will follow the format of the revised Economic Justice produced for the BiLC from the Lent 2012 study: there will be five weeks of paired OT/NT readings, with introductions, notes, and study questions. This year the study will attempt to add a broader array of prompts, including relevant images and narratives related to the theme of Gender Justice and the context of the Church of Ireland. A number of BACI previous authors will again be contributing to the study, but several new authors are also participating.

Look for downloads to be available around late December/early January. If you are interested in the course and do not hear about it, remember we can be emailed at baci.anglican@gmail.com.
