Modern Perspective On The Bible

Think 13 Comments 161

Hour 1: Many people turn to the Bible for answers, but they sometimes come away asking more questions. And often those questions are matters of interpretation. We’ll look at this ancient text through modern eyes this hour with The Rev. Adam Hamilton, the Methodist pastor who preached at the national prayer service that was part of President Obama’s second inauguration. His new book is Making Sense of the Bible: Rediscovering the Power of Scripture Today.

    One comment on semantics – I noticed that the author referred to fundamentalist churches as evangelical. This is one of my pet peeves, as many mainline Christian churches are evangelical but not fundamentalists. Conversely, many fundamentalists are not truly evangelical.
