Adult Education Series: Apocalypse: Then and Now

Wednesdays at 7pm, October 10, 17, & 24

Part of the "Faith in the Future" series.

The New Testament ends with a book both frightening and hopeful, named The Revelation to John, but more often referred to by its single word name "Apocalypse". It does not stand alone in the Bible (Daniel is its best friend) and certainly does not stand alone in literature and art through the ages. Time and space, straight lines and curves, history and eternity, art and writing all take on new meanings in Apocalypse: Then and Now. Join Canon Griffith and others for a three-week romp through heaven and hell, and get ready for the new volume of The Saint John's Bible, Letters and Revelations, coming in November.
