Lisa Harper – “Discovering God’s Extravagant Love in Scripture”
All too often the Bible is wielded as a club, leaving hurting people with the impression that He exhales with disappointment every time He glances in our prone-to-wander direction. It’s time we learned the liberating truth about Scripture—our Creator Redeemer’s compassion is what drives Biblical narrative, proving that He’s been in the process of redeeming us all along!
In her live stream, Lisa Harper will take you on an engaging, eye-opening, and encouraging journey from some seemingly problematic passages in the Old Testament to a couple of complex-at-first-glance pit stops in the New Testament to illustrate how with the proper hermeneutic and socio-historical context, God’s Word always moves His people toward restoration and straight into His loving arms.
LISA HARPER is a Bible teacher and the author of 14 books and four video-based Bible study curriculums. “Hilarious storyteller” and “theological scholar” are rarely used to describe the same person—but Harper is anything but typical. A gifted communicator, she writes and speaks using colorful pop culture references that connect the dots between the Bible era and modern life.
She is the former director of Focus on the Family’s national women’s ministry, where she created the popular “Renewing the Heart” conferences. Harper, has a master’s in theological studies from Covenant Seminary and is currently pursuing a doctorate from Denver Seminary. She was a featured speaker on the Women of Faith national arena tour for eight years.
