The Bible and the English Major

Maren Jo Schneider

The Bible is packed with dang good drama, bizarre ancient context, and surprisingly creative artistry, but that can all be hard to notice in a quick read. That’s where I, an enthusiastic English Major, come in. Taking a different angle every 2 weeks, we’ll approach a single relevant Bible story through a series of accessible 20-minute episodes. Then, because the best part of any good story is getting to talk about it with friends, I’ll invite a guest to come and chat about it. If you’re looking for a fresh take on stories you think you know, or you’re curious about how Biblical authors used things like irony, symbolism, and even humor to make a point, join the conversation!
