Augustana College to host conversation about God

Rock Island, Ill. – Consider different Biblical interpretations of God with Dr. Kelly Murphy, an expert on the Hebrew Bible, with her lecture "The Spirit of the Lord" on Thursday, April 4, at 7:30 p.m. in Hanson Hall of Science (726 35th Street), Room 102. The presentation is free and open to the public.
Dr. Murphy studies the Hebrew Bible and Judaism with an emphasis on interpreting Biblical text from both the historical and literary perspectives. She then looks at how those interpretations have changed through time from the ancient world until today.
As the Conrad J.

She holds degrees from Emory University, the University of Oxford and the University of Chicago.
