Note: This training was originally offered in a semester format in 2015.

Drawing on the tools of literary, historical, structural and canonical criticism, we will discuss the questions of: Who wrote the Hebrew Bible? Why and when was it written? What role has it played in our western culture? And what leadership lessons can we draw from it for our day and age?

Rev. Joan Van Becelaere, Congregational Life Staff and Regional Lead, Central East Region

During her seminary studies, she was fascinated by the Hebrew Bible and considered it as a possible PhD focus. As a result, she took 3 years of Hebrew language and numerous courses on Hebrew Bible history, theology and exegesis and studied with one of the most influential liberal modern scholars, Dr. Walter Brueggemann.
