Looking for a Bible study or book to help me dive deeper into the context/history. Don't want it to be so academic that it's hard to get into but also don't want it to be as fluffy as a devotional

Tim keller has a study series on a number of books in the bible. Macarthur study bible is also amazing. You can get it as an app

Personal preference - looking for something a bit more contemporary and not evangelical. I'm a Methodist, if that helps.

There are a millions study guides online. Cathedral Bookstore online has excellent mainline (less evangelical) materials and good to support specialty business for this rather than Amazon.

I usually choose specific books to study, though it’s been a while. A study guide for Acts or one of the Gospels would be a good start. Sorry I can’t recall what I last used that I liked.

If you're looking for context, try the MacArthur commentary. It's not too academic and focused on driving to the point of the text.

Wow thank you so much! I will take a look 🥰

Sure thing! It’s part of a larger series of commentaries that look very good. I’ve only read the Galatians and 1st Corinthians books, so can’t really comment on the others, but they’re all written by very solid pastors

The NRSV study Bible is full of great summaries and explanations. Also, anything by NT Wright.

Any CBS fish who attended or didn’t attend Hamptons Week? For those who didn’t attend, did it impact the social aspect once school started? For those who did, did it give a leg up in your network? This is the only pre-CBS in person trip for those matriculating this fall. TBH the itinerary for the trip isn’t my cup of tea but as an introvert I’m a bit concerned about showing up when half the class have already met each other.

I have a writer that sometimes writes off brand, and gets mad when I correct the copy.

In one instance, they challenged me by adding some deleted copy back on the document. What should I do? I think they see me as a colleague, and not a boss.

I’m trying so hard to break into iOS developer roles, and I’m landing quite a few interviews, but then when I get to the technical interview I feel like I bomb them 😭

I keep on having recruiters reach out to me for non developer roles and I don’t want to be in sales or doing ux designer roles due to the lack of job security in them…. Idk if it’s wrong but I’ve always thought that the more technical your skills are the higher job security you have, but idk how true that is?

Anyone here from Accenture? I know one of the best ad agencies is now owned by them.
