Launching our inaugural conference in September 2015, The Big Story of Scripture filled the halls of Hinson Baptist Church in Southeast Portland, as women came from all over Oregon and Washington to hear Nancy Guthrie teach and to interact in practical workshops. Nancy Guthrie is a gifted Bible teacher and speaks at conferences around the nation and internationally. She is the author of numerous books including Hearing Jesus Speak Into Your Sorrow and a five-book series of Old Testament Bible Studies called Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament series.
Together we rejoiced in the beauty of the plan of redemption and responded to the word of God being taught. Nancy led us from Genesis to Revelation, illuminating the themes of the Lamb, the three trees, and a King that weave through the heart of the Bible’s message. We felt we could answer the question “What is the Bible about?” from her richly painted images and clear explanation of the links throughout Scripture. The workshop times trained women to see how the gospel affects every ministry and provided discussion about how to implement teaching with the gospel in the center. You can read more about the conference on Western Seminary’s own blog, Transformed. You can also listen to the immensely helpful workshop recordings below.
