The study of contradictory interpretations of Biblical stories empower us to engage more constructively in ideological and political conflicts today.
Many of the most heated ideological and political conflicts in the world today arise from the contradictory ways various groups interpret their reality and texts. From religious and historical texts to the texts of social and mainstream media, conflicting groups find themselves in ever deepening narrative divides, with little to no ability to understand and engage in meaningful and constructive disagreement.
Join us in classic and relevant text study that seeks to empower your organization to understand and engage in political and ideological disagreements more constructively.
