We are very pleased to announce the development of a CSBV community learning program. This will be a five course non-credit certificate program that will equip lay leaders and interested believers to think well about the violent texts of scripture, and the use of scripture in a violent world.

While we are still in the early stages of developing this program, we are please to announce that the first two courses will be offered as a single one-week intensive, 23-28 October 2023. Called “Suffering and Sorrow,” it will exam a variety of matters of violence within the text of scripture, and how we can best understand what those texts are teaching, and how to appreciate them rightly as Christian scripture. It will be held live in Middletown, Ohio, USA, and also available on Zoom. Please contact Ashley Hibbard for more information or to register.
