Wilburn Stancil - From Ancient Texts to Literary Masterpiece
All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25, and remain closed all day on Thursday, November 26, for Thanksgiving.
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.
