“Genesis: What the People Who Wrote It Intended It to Say” will be the topic of a five-week miniseries presented by Alice Logan at the library from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5, 12, 19 and 26 with the final class on Tuesday, April 2.
Call Maggie Schuler at 376-5312 or Alice Logan at 376-3253 with any questions, and if you plan to attend. Bring a Bible (any Bible) to class. The subjects covered will be the two creation accounts, Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, the Flood, and selected portions of the Patriarchal cycles.
Logan received her Bachelor of Arts in theology (focus on Biblical studies) at Seattle University in 1968 and then her Master of Arts in theology (focus on Old Testament studies) from the University of Dayton, Ohio, in 1971. Logan earned a Master of Science in geology in 1982 to help support her family. After retirement, Logan was able to return to her first love: she refreshed her biblical Hebrew, brought her knowledge of biblical research up to date, immersed herself in archeological papers, and then wrote a paper that was published in the Journal of Biblical Literature in 2009.
The following year she was able to live a life-long dream by participating in a five-week dig at an archeological site in Israel. Logan has recently submitted her second paper to the Journal of Biblical Literature and is working on her third.
