Ryan Fleenor for a four-week book study on Melissa Florer-Bixler’s Fire byNight: Finding God in the Pages of the Old Testament. A Mennonite pastor in NorthCarolina whose writing has been featured in The Atlantic, Florer-Bixler explores theHebrew Scriptures from the vantage point of a contemporary person of faith. How do weread these words written in a world so different from ours? How does our readingchanging when we remember that we share these stories with our Muslim and Jewish neighbors? Whatdo they have to do with our contemporary struggles for racial, economic, or environmental justice? Whatmight they have to do with our own personal lives of prayer and faith? This fall, rediscover the power ofthe Old Testament to burn away our expectations and set us on fire with God’s love.
