Jo Ann Gardner Presents A Farmer’s Journey Into the Bible
November 14, 2015 @ 2:00 pm
Local author Jo Ann Gardner will discuss her latest book, Seeds of Transcendence: Understanding the Hebrew Bible Through Plants, and the impact of her farming background on how she approached the text.
How does this differ from the usual books on the subject? What were the drawbacks and advantages of being outside the world of biblical scholars?
Find out why Jo Ann was moved to write this book. You don’t need to have specialized knowledge of the Bible or plants to enjoy this presentation. Copies of Seeds of Transcendence will be available for sale and signing.
The event is free; donations are welcome.
