Men’s Bible study every Tuesday morning @ 6:30 am. Donuts and Coffee (maybe even kolaches). Meeting in Overton Hall (west end of Oakwood UMC Lubbock complex, 2215 58th St, Lubbock, Texas – Google Maps Link). It’s a great time to learn about the Bible from within a small group of just us guys. We have a great time; come hang out with us.
Currently, we are exploring bible passages related to “The Way of the Wild Heart: A Map for the Masculine Journey” by author John Eldredge. John Eldredge is an American author, counselor, and lecturer on Christianity. He is known for his best-selling book “Wild at Heart”.
Wikipedia says this about John Eldredge:
“Eldredge believes that typical presentations of the Christian Gospel miss the vital fact that there is a “Larger Story.” The reality of a grand love narrative, set in an epic battle for the hearts of mankind — a battle in which we, if we choose to follow Christ, have a role to play — is largely absent from the Gospel as most Christians understand it. According to Eldredge, most people see the offer of salvation as simply forgiveness of sins and a ticket to Heaven.
The thought of the Gospel as something that through the “full Work of Christ” (his death, resurrection, and ascension) has real effects now, on this side of Heaven, is largely missing: both forgiveness AND deliverance from sin and the works of the devil through Christ’s crucifixion; the offer of life and the potential to a become a new creature that does not desire to sin and has a good heart through the resurrection; and the real authority of the believer through the ascension.”
