Peter Enns - How the Bible Actually Works: In Which I Explain How an Ancient, Ambiguous, and Diverse Book Leads Us to Wisdom Rather Than Answers, and Why That's Great News

Upcoming Event
Monday, February 25, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In this bold, sometimes controversial, approach to the Bible, popularized in his The Bible for Normal People podcast, Enns advises us not to go to the scriptures for answers. The Bible is not a rulebook, he says, but a tool. If we approach it as a textbook for faith or a how-to manual, we will miss what is truly valuable about it. It’s not a static document, nor does it contain the literal truth. Rather, it’s a dynamic resource that, when we come to it with an open mind and allow it to set our expectations rather than fulfill them, can enrich our lives. The author of The Sin of Certainty, The Bible Tells Me So, and Inspiration and Incarnation, Enns is Abram S. Clemens Professor of Biblical Studies at Eastern University.
