Dean's Colloquium: The Bible in the Life of the Church
October 25, 2018
Presenters: Luke Timothy Johnson
The texts that have come to be known as Scripture are the product of a sensus ecclesiae, or a sense among the body of the church that the canonized writings reflect an authentic experience of the Holy Spirit’s influence. The Bible’s collection has provided a source of continuity throughout the history of the Church. How can we renew our engagement with the Scriptures as a source of vitality for the Church of the future?
