What do unicorns, law, love, and hell all have in common? They are all unfortunate words of the Bible. Through mistranslation, cultural shifts, anachronisms, and misguided intentions, this book traces several key words whose meaning is commonly misunderstood in our world today.
If the blatant mistranslation of unicorns could survive in the Bible for thousands of years, securing their place in our cultural imagination to this day, what would happen if important words, like salvation, were misunderstood? How might our cultural imaginations hide the meaning of the Bible rather than revealing it?
By tearing down misunderstandings, Rev. Dr. Greg Wagenfuhr builds up a broad overview of the story of the Bible that illustrates a more mature and more exciting vision for Christian faith(fulness) than is commonly assumed.
Join local author Rev. Dr. Greg Wagenfuhr for an evening on unicorns … and other ‘unfortunate’ words of the Bible! Wagenfuhr’s latest work engages thoughtfully, and at times humorously, with some commonly misunderstood concepts. There will be time for Q&A with the author, some great deals only available at the event, book signing, and light refreshments.
There is no cost to attend this event. There will be books for sale.
