Robert Cargill at First Presbyterian Church, with Prairie Lights

Robert R. Cargill, University of Iowa assistant professor of classics and religious studies, will speak at the Iowa City First Presbyterian Church. Dr. Cargill will talk about his new book, The Cities that Built the Bible, which introduces readers to a dozen cities that were formative in the stories behind the writing of, or the later understanding of, the Old and New Testaments, and this lecture will be a reflection on the Spirit of God in the two testaments. Prairie Lights will have copies for The Cities that Built the Bible at the church for purchase. Robert R. Cargill has appeared in more than a dozen television documentaries, including "Finding Jesus" on CNN and "Bible Secrets Revealed" on History, and was the host of National Geographic’s "Writing the Dead Sea Scrolls." He lives in Iowa City. “The most original and entertaining approach to telling the story of the Bible that I’ve seen...Anyone who wants to know how recent archaeological discoveries have revolutionized our understanding of the Bible should read this book.” —William Schniedewind, Ph.D. Prof of Ancient Eastern Mediterranean Studies at UCLA Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa–sponsored events.
