9780062234964: Making Sense of the Bible

Denominations from evangelical to mainline continue to experience deep divisions over universal social issues. The underlying debate isn t about a particular social issue, but instead it is about the authority of the Bible. In Making Sense of the Bible, Adam Hamilton, one of the country s leading pastors and Christian authors, addresses the hot-button issues that plague the church and cultural debate, and answers many of the questions frequently asked by Christians and non-Christians alike. Did God really command Moses to put gay people to death? Did Jesus really teach that everyone who is not a Christian will be assigned to hell? Why would Paul command women to keep silent in the church? Who decided which books made it into the scriptures and why? Is the Bible ever wrong? In approachable and inviting language, Hamilton addresses these often misunderstood biblical themes leading readers to a deeper appreciation of the Bible so that we might hear God speak through it and find its words to be life-changing and life-giving.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2014. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 213 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In Making Sense of the Bible, Adam Hamilton invites us into an honest conversation about the Bible. The book begins with foundational questions such as, How and when was the Bible written? Who decided which books made it into the scriptures and why? How literally must we read it? And, Is the Bible ever wrong?From there, Hamilton considers the real questions people frequently ask that continue to divide Christians and denominations alike, including: Were Adam and Eve real people? Why is God so violent in the Old Testament?Why would Paul command women to keep silent in the church ? Is Jesus the only way to salvation?How does God view homosexual people?Is the Book of Revelation a guide to the End Times?In approachable and inviting language, Hamilton addresses these often misunderstood biblical themes leading readers to a deeper appreciation of the Bible so that we might hear God speak through it and find its words to be life-changing and life-giving.
