Event description

Description

The Bible is such a big book, it's easy to get lost in the forest because of all the trees. You need a map that helps keep you on the main path from Genesis to Revelation.

In this presentation, Dr. Bergsma shares with audiences the "mental map" of the Bible he wishes he had when he started reading the Scriptures at age twelve. Whether you've read through the Bible many times, or have never picked up the Good Book, you'll enjoy Dr. Bergsma's presentation, as he uses easy-to-draw stick figures to sketch out the main Bible story line.

The message of the Bible has rarely been so easy to see! Best of all, you can use Dr. Bergsma's method to share the Bible message with others.

Dr. John Bergsma is Full Professor of Theology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville in Steubenville, Ohio. He grew up Protestant (Dutch Calvinist) and served as a pastor for four years before becoming Catholic in 2001 while getting a Ph.D. in Scripture from the University of Notre Dame (Indiana).

Dr Bergsma completed his doctoral work on the Year of Jubilee in 2004, and has been teaching in Steubenville ever since. He specializes in Old Testament and the Dead Sea Scrolls. He also specializes in taking care of his wife and seven children. They live in Steubenville, Ohio, about a mile from the university.
