The Staff of CBFNC prays that your Christmas will be meaningful and blessed!
In appreciation for your support, we'd like to offer you a gift. 
Practicing Midrash:
Reading the Bible's Arguments
as an Invitation to Conversation
Tim Moore recently recorded a webinar with CBFNC based on his new book,  Practicing Midrash: Reading the Bible's Arguments as an Invitation to Conversation.  Tim and his publisher, Wipf & Stock, have given us the introduction and first two chapters of this book to be shared with our constituency! Tim's insights from deep study and reflection will guide you to see Biblical texts through a new lens. You may access your gift  here ! (This is the link to the website and to the "download here" book excerpt.)
