A popular meme says that reading the Bible is the fastest way to become an atheist! On the face of it, the Bible does seem to have some verses that are pro-slavery, pro-violence, anti-women, and anti-science. Leaving aside the fact that atheists have no objective moral standard by which to judge anything wrong, these verses do seem to present a problem for Christians. Young people see these memes and are cast into doubt. That’s why you need to get the excellent new book by pastor and seminary professor Dan Kimball called 𝑯𝒐𝒘 (𝑵𝒐𝒕) 𝒕𝒐 𝑹𝒆𝒂𝒅 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑩𝒊𝒃𝒍𝒆: 𝑴𝒂𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝑺𝒆𝒏𝒔𝒆 𝒐𝒇 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑨𝒏𝒕𝒊-𝑾𝒐𝒎𝒆𝒏, 𝑨𝒏𝒕𝒊-𝑺𝒄𝒊𝒆𝒏𝒄𝒆, 𝑷𝒓𝒐-𝑽𝒊𝒐𝒍𝒆𝒏𝒄𝒆, 𝑷𝒓𝒐-𝑺𝒍𝒂𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒚 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝑶𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓 𝑪𝒓𝒂𝒛𝒚-𝑺𝒐𝒖𝒏𝒅𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝑷𝒂𝒓𝒕𝒔 𝒐𝒇 𝑺𝒄𝒓𝒊𝒑𝒕𝒖𝒓𝒆. Dan clearly answers these charges and shows us how to properly interpret these passages. This is a MUST read/listen!
