Wilburn Stancil - From Ancient Texts to Literary Masterpiece
All Library locations will be closed on Monday, July 4, for Independence Day.
Wilburn Stancil discusses the King James Bible, of which it has been written: “If everything else in our language should perish, it alone would suffice to show the extent of its beauty and power.”
The program complements Manifold Greatness: The Creation and Afterlife of the King James Bible, an exhibit on display starting July 12 at the Central Library.
Stancil is a professor of theology and religious studies at Rockhurst University.
