From Peter Hardy, Chaplaincy Assistant:
The Bible for Bluffers is a name for the Bible discussion group held in the Chaplaincy Centre on Wednesday lunchtimes during term time. It runs on alternate years against our doctrinal theology discussion group Theology & Doughnuts. If you would like to use this material as the basis for your own discussion group, obviously withhold our responses to the questions until your group has had plenty time to discuss them themselves. Our answers could then be used as prompts if there aren’t enough answers forthcoming on that occasion.
We shall be discussing the Old Testament in the Autumn Term before moving on to the New Testament in the Spring Term. (We shall not spend the Summer Term discussing the Book of Mormon, as like many of my ideas it was rather unpopular!)
Here I will be blogging through our weekly discussions giving the opportunity for some further discussion and further information. With some sessions I’ve ended up producing two versions, a summary and a ‘directors cut’ extended version. Feel free to comment on either version, but it may be a good idea to look if there are comments on the other version and participate in that discussion.
5. The Exodus
18. Life Eternal
