The Festival Scrolls

hosted by BibleWorm

 

This summer series is being hosted by the BibleWorm podcast with Amy Robertson and Robert Williamson Jr. The series draws on Williamson’s book The Forgotten Books of the Bible: Recovering the Five Scrolls for Today (Fortress Press, 2018), which you may find helpful for your preaching. There is also a free study guide to the book available for download, which might be useful for Sunday School or book club discussions.

 

The podcasts for this series were recorded during the summer of 2020 and are all immediately available. Video lectures are available on YouTube. Liturgies will be available for Patreon subscribers at the LiturgyWorm Level and higher beginning on May 1, 2021.
