Description

This is a rare opportunity to study with poet Malcolm Guite, who will share with the class his series of sonnets that reflect on and wrestle with the teachings of Jesus. All four Gospels record these teachings, both the attractive ('consider the lilies of the field') and the challenging ('sell all you have!'). Approach Jesus's teachings through the lenses of both scholarship and poetry.
