The Bible is a series of books written, edited and assembled over thousands of years. It contains the most influential stories of mankind. Knowledge of those stories is essential to a deep understanding of Western culture, which is in turn vital to proper psychological health (as human beings are cultural animals) and societal stability. These stories are neither history, as we commonly conceive it, nor empirical science. Instead, they are investigations into the structure of Being itself and calls to action within that Being. They have deep psychological significance. This lecture series, starting with the very first book, will constitute an analysis of that significance.

Pricing: Although I had originally estimated 16.95 per lecture, I couldn’t get a low cost university lecture hall, and had to rent and staff a comparatively expensive high-end theatre (although I chose the least costly of the available options).

The disadvantage is the higher cost. But it will be more comfortable and welcoming, with better display and acoustics.
