Elaine Pagels at Trinity Wall Street Sunday Jan 12th at 10.00am




Revelation: Prophecies that Provoke


The Epiphany series of Discovery classes begins this Sunday with leading theologian Elaine Pagels talking about the Book of Revelation. Don't miss this chance to see Pagels speak about a subject she wrote about at length in her 2012 bookRevelations: Visions, Prophecy, and Politics in the Book of Revelation.
Throughout this Discovery series, a diverse group of leading scholars and teachers guide the exploration of this most challenging and influential biblical book. From Handel’s classic "Hallelujah Chorus" to the best-selling Left Behind novels, The Revelation to John has fired imaginations for centuries while keeping its secrets in enigmatic images and evocative poetry. Written in turbulent times, it continues to exert its fascination in periods of upheaval and change, like our own.
