 Description: Author and Bible scholar Marcus Borg invites us to join him in revisiting Christianity's most fundamental questions: Who is God? What does salvation mean? What place does Jesus hold in contemporary Christian faith? In this five-session, faith-formation resource, participants enjoy the rare privilege of witnessing Marcus in dialogue with a small, diverse group of adults as they honestly -- and sometimes painfully -- confront the big questions and work together toward authentic answers. Each session includes a 10-minute presentation by Marcus Borg followed by interaction with the group. The program print resources are designed to help your small group "join the dialogue" in your own setting.

The study addresses fundamental questions that adults struggle with as faith matures. It can be used as a resource for personal reflection as well as small group experience. Rental Fee $10.00

Resource: DVD (DV250) Race the Power of an Illusion     
Publisher: California Newsreel, 2003
Length: 168 mins
Subjects: Race and Diversity - Racism
# Copies: 1
 Description: Race - The Power of an Illusion challenges one of our most fundamental beliefs: that humans come divided into a few distinct biological groups. This definitive three-part series is an eye-opening tale of how what we assume to be normal, commonsense, even scientific, is actually shaped by our history, social institutions and cultural beliefs. Episode 1- The Difference Between Us examines the contemporary science - including genetics - that challenges our common sense assumptions that human beings can be bundled into three or four fundamentally different groups according to their physical traits. Episode 2- The Story We Tell uncovers the roots of the race concept in North America, the 19th century science that legitimated it, and how it came to be held so fiercely in the western imagination. The episode is an eye-opening tale of how race served to rationalize, even justify, American social inequalities as "natural." Episode 3- The House We Live In asks, If race is not biology, what is it? This episode uncovers how race resides not in nature but in politics, economics and culture. It reveals how our social institutions "make" race by disproportionately channeling resources, power, status and wealth to white people.

When he asked his pastor for guidance, she explained to him that, based on scripture, being transgendered — holding both the male and female experience in one body — may be the closest that humans can get to holiness.

Resource: DVD (DV6060) Making Sense of the Bible DVD: Rediscovering the Power of Scripture Today     
Author: Hamilton, Adam
Publisher: Abingdon Press, 2014
Heading: A-C — Adult Education / Curriculum
Subjects: Adult Education - Curriculum
# Copies: 2
 Description: In Making Sense of the Bible, Adam Hamilton invites us into an honest conversation about the Bible. The book begins with foundational questions such as, How and when was the Bible written? Who decided which books made it into the scriptures and why? How literally must we read it? And, Is the Bible ever wrong?

From there, Hamilton considers the real questions people frequently ask that continue to divide Christians and denominations alike, including:

• Were Adam and Eve real people?
• Why is God so violent in the Old Testament?
• Why would Paul command women to "keep silent in the church"?
• Is Jesus the only way to salvation? • How does God view homosexual people?
• Is the Book of Revelation a guide to the End Times?

In approachable and inviting language, Hamilton addresses these often misunderstood biblical themes leading readers to a deeper appreciation of the Bible so that we might hear God speak through it and find its words to be life-changing and life-giving.

In this six week video study, Adam Hamilton explores the key points in his new book, Making Sense of the Bible. With the help of a downloadable leader’s guide, the video presentations from the author lead groups through the book, focusing on the most important questions we ask about the Bible, its origins and meaning.
