Discovering the key to the chronology of the Old Testament is one product of this wide-ranging Bible study. The broad scope extends from the simplicity of Abraham as head of household to a criticism of Progressivism; from why an hour is sixty minutes long to the precession of the stars; from the Exodus to its reflection in the Gospel story; from the simplicity of prayer to eschatology. Its objective is to build faith through inclusion rather than exclusion and to offer a new way to read the Bible from afar. Controversial? Yes. Main stream Christian? Yes.
Hagen describes himself as a restless Christian unsatisfied with the present state of our religion. After a career in high tech business management, he has retired to his boyhood home in Montana where he has the time to ponder and reflect on the status of Christianity as an institution. With degrees in Psychology and Law (JD) and an eclectic interest in history and Bible, he draws on his education and experience to offer a new way to build faith.
