CANCELED - Coffee Shop Talk: The Real Sin of Sodom (and It's Not What You Think)

Contact: Dr. Jennifer Berenson, berenson@roanoke.edu

The ancient story of Sodom and Gomorrah lives on in modern cultural imagination and, for some, in our nightmares. Come explore with us whether the traditional interpretation of this story is justified by the biblical evidence--its language, literary context, parallel stories and cultural context. The behavior actually condemned by the God of the Hebrew Scriptures speaks to our world today and may surprise you. Roanoke College Coffee Shop Talks provide a relaxed forum for discussion and inquiry on a wide range of topics. Each one-hour talk includes a short presentation, followed by questions and discussion. These lectures are free and open to the public.
