The Hazardous Bible

Bruggemann Bible echoes quote

“People of faith can read the Bible so that almost any perspective on a current issue will find some support in the Bible. That rich and multivoiced offering in the Bible is what makes appeals to it so tempting – and yet so tricky and hazardous, because much of our reading of the Bible turns out to be an echo of what we thought anyway.”
