The Dickinson Series: Exploring the Bible is a small group study made exactly for you. This ecumenical study will help you explore some of the best known Bible passages and to discover some of the many ways that they can be interpreted. You will learn how the Bible as we know it was put together, who decided what parts were in and what parts were out, and where to go with your questions about the wonderful, baffling, beautiful, unsettling book we call the Bible.
