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
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?
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?
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.
