Texts of Terror Class Continues December 9

 
In 1984, Old Testament scholar Phyllis Trible published her groundbreaking book, Texts of Terror, in which she explored certain deeply troubling biblical passages. Although Trible’s “Texts of Terror” dealt specifically with stories that portrayed the victimization of women, the term is now used more broadly to describe those texts that continue to challenge and confound the contemporary reader. 
 
Our class will take a break for Thanksgiving, but will resume on December 9th. Please make plans to join co-facilitators Carmie McDonald and Claiborne Jones and other members of the St. Bede’s community as we continue our study of the Texts of Terror by discussing the story of Jephthah’s daughter (Judges 11:29-40).
 
Please contact Carmie McDonald at cmcdonald@stbedes.org if you’d like to attend.
