Book: The Bible Tells Me So... Why Defending Scripture Has Made Us Unable to Read It by Peter Enns
Chapter 1 - "I'll Take Door Number Three"
Have you ever had questions about the Bible? Questions like:
It's OK to struggle with the Bible. Really! The Bible isn’t always going to behave the way we expect or want it to. And why should it? Jesus wasn’t exactly known for behaving, so why would the Bible?
Bible Scholar Pete Enns says, "I believe God wants us to take the Bible seriously, but I don't believe [God] wants us to suppress our questions about it... The problem isn't the Bible. The problem is coming to the Bible with expectations it's not set up to bear." (The Bible Tells Me So. HaprerOne Publishing.)
You are not alone if you have struggled to understand the violence and contradictions in the Bible, or if you can't seem to make sense of the bible as a holy rulebook. Join us for a summer study about the Bible, as we wrestle with the bible together in ways that can help us stretch and grow into an even truer faith, and an even closer relationship with God.
