Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
Well, I got to start somewhere...
Several people at the San Francisco Meeting recommended I read "Friends for 300/350 years". Another recommendation was the "Pacific Yearly Meeting Faith and Practice". Guess I have some good reading ahead huh?!
I also signed up for the UK's Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre's "Becoming Friend" introduction to Quakerism.
It is an interesting course.
Seeing I am not really familiar with Christianity, I have been doing some reading about Jesus. I read a book called "Rabbi Jesus" by Bruce Chilton. I found the book interesting. He paints a picture of a Jesus that is different then what I grew up hearing about. I am thinking that I need to read a overview of Judaism. Seems that if one is to understand Jesus' message, having an understanding of the spiritual community he grew up in and the people he was addressing would be important.
Thoughts and recommendations?
