Bible Secrets Revealed Wednesday

Bob Cargill mentioned that the premiere of the documentary series “Bible Secrets Revealed” has been moved to Wednesday. He also provided this to tide you over until then:   [Read more…]

Being Biblical is Unbiblical

I had my attention drawn today to a blog post by Donald Miller, “My Problem with the Word ‘Biblical’.” In it he writes: And so this idea that the Bible presents a comprehensive guide for relationships that is Biblical is, in fact, not a Biblical idea. Nor is it “biblical” for us to use the Bible as [Read More…]

Ridiculous Hype (but for a series genuinely worth watching)

Scott Bailey shared the promotional video for the upcoming series on the History Channel, Bible Secrets Revealed, on YouTube. I do not think that it will change your mind about everything you think about the Bible. But they really did interview some of the world’s leading scholars – and also me! [Read more…]

Beyond Biblical Literacy

Jeremy Myers wrote a blog post “Biblical Illiteracy is Not a Problem.” I really wanted to be able to disagree, given the title. But I don’t. The point of his post is that, if Christians knew only small snippets of the Bible – “Love God” and “Love your neighbor” – and actually practiced it, that [Read More…]

The series is entitled, Bible Secrets Revealed, and is produced by Prometheus [Read More…]

The Bible Says

David Hayward’s latest cartoon makes a good point. People have justified all sorts of contradictory things from the Bible – from their faith to their atheism, from their right-wing politics to their left-wing economics, from their violence against others to their pacifism. What are the implications of recognizing this and taking it seriously? At the [Read More…]

The Godless Meteorological Conspiracy

Pete Enns linked to a blog post that makes a point I’ve often made here. If you are going to oppose evolution on the grounds that it embraces naturalism, then by golly you’ve got to really get upset about meteorology. It is secular, fundamentally opposed to Biblical teaching, and on the television 24/7. After summarizing [Read More…]
