Earlier this week i posted here that i’ve been hosting live online readalouds all year, and that my husband and i had recently started live online Bible teaching videos. Well, it’s time to combine those two: Next up is my first live online readalong!
What’s the difference between a readaloud and a readalong, you may ask? In a readaloud, you show up (maybe with a cozy tiger and a cup of tea), and i read to you. In a readalong, we both have a copy of the book, and we read and discuss together.
The book i’ve picked: Christopher J.H. Wright’s very excellent The Mission of God’s People.
Wright is one of my favorite Old Testament scholars, in part because of his big-picture approach and his very accessible writing. The chapters are short, and you’ll have no problem, whatever your background, following along with the conversation. This book follows on naturally from the series i just wrapped up, about the Bible’s Grand Narrative. (You can go ahead and binge that now, if you want to catch up—but no worries; Wright will get you caught up as we go!)
Go ahead and click the book image to find your own copy at a local-to-you (or online) independent bookstore. That’s an affiliate link, so when you purchase, i will receive (at no extra cost to you) a small percent of the purchase amount. My hope in setting that up is to help you find good independent bookstores, but also to fund whatever comes next in the goal of connecting people i love to books and authors i love. (See my last post.)
i hope you’ll join me for the readalong! It’ll be starting on August 31, at Glossary Parish.
