SUBMITTED by Joan Rose, Williamson Presbyterian Church (9-Sep-2010)

Dr. J. Richard Middleton, a well-known Old Testament Bible scholar, will be speaking on Friday, September 17 at 7:00 PM in the Red Brick Church at 4057 Main Street in Williamson, the Presbyterian Church. This event is free and open to anyone who would like to learn about the Bible.

Dr. Middleton is famous for his work on Genesis, the first book of the Old Testament, and his understanding of the creation account, published in his book The Imago Dei in Genesis 1. He is Professor of Biblical Studies at Roberts Wesleyan College, and Professor of Bible and Culture at Northeastern Seminary. He has written one other book and co-authored another, and is in constant demand at conferences and for contributions to peer-review journals on Biblical scholarship.
“His work is in the same class as our nation’s most famous Old Testament scholar, Walter Brueggemann,” according to Kirk Baker, the pastor at Williamson Presbyterian. “His approach is different, but his knowledge and understanding are equal, his application to current life is just as helpful and challenging, and both share a deep faith that adds urgency to their readings.” 
If you would like more information about this event, please call the Red Brick Church at 589-8260.
