Matthew Quartey: “A Case for an Open Biblical Canon” at the Asheville Forum

(3:00 p.m. eastern / 2:00 p.m. central / noon Pacific)

Matthew Quartey will present "A Case for an Open Biblical Canon" at the Zoom Asheville Forum on Saturday, October 28. All are invited. 

Key exploratory thoughts:
  1. Does the Bible support a closed morality or ethics?
  2. Biblical contradictions and inaccuracies demonstrate evolving thinking as people’s knowledge and ethics expanded
  3. For the Bible to be relevant we have to be open to questioning dubious ethical claims, even if they’re attributed to God
  4. We honor the Bible writers when we transcend their times and limitations

Quartey was born and raised in Southern Ghana and obtained graduate and postgraduate education in Ghana, Nigeria and the United States. His academic interests center around post-independence African literature as well as literature of 19th century British/American period. He approaches the Bible primarily as literature. Quartey works in healthcare management, taking care of such inconveniences as eating, clothing, and sheltering. Currently, he is empty-nesting with his wife, Sophia, in Berrien Springs, Michigan, their shared Adventist Mecca.
