Scouting the Divine
Date: October 2009
Duration: 4 hours 58 minutes
A Bible full of ancient truths. A woman living a modern life. Join critically acclaimed author Margaret Feinberg as she invites readers on the spiritual adventure of a lifetime. In her quest to better understand what God wants to communicate through the Bible, Feinberg explores the symbols and metaphors within its stories. To discover these deeper meanings, she spends time with a shepherdess in Oregon, walks the fields with a farmer in Nebraska, explores a vineyard of California, and talks with a veteran beekeeper in Colorado. Along the way, she gains deeper insight about how Scripture applies to life today and discovers answers to puzzling questions. Do sheep really know their shepherd's voice? How often does a grapevine need to be pruned? What does it mean when a land is described as overflowing with honey?
Feinberg, a popular author and speaker, was named one of the 'Thirty Emerging Voices' of Christian leaders under forty who will lead the church in the next decade, and one of the 'Forty under Forty' who will shape Christian publishing.
