   Kevin Saunders The Bible Between The Lines...
   The Bible Between The Lines meets Tuesdays
   from 10 –11:30am in the COC.

There are many approaches to studying the Bible and all of them offer valuable insights in understanding the sacred text. The Arizona Bible Class draws on insights gleaned from the study of Historical Geography and Middle Eastern culture to inform the systematic study of the Bible in each of its classes. Kevin Saunders is a Bible teacher. Kevin brings his gifts as knowledge of the Bible and its cultural world to life in his classes. Arizona Bible Class students can (and do!) study every book in the Bible, page by page, chapter by chapter, verse by verse, in a lecture based format lasting an hour and a half each session.Questions?
