HOW THE BIBLE ACTUALLY WORKS In Which I Explain How an Ancient, Ambiguous, and Diverse Book Leads Us to Wisdom Rather Than Answers - and Why That's Great News

by | Read by Peter Enns

Philosophy & Religion • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

If you've listened to Pete Enns's podcast, "The Bible for Normal People," you'll be familiar with his informal tone and conversational cadence as he narrates his newest audiobook. Enns, a professor of biblical studies at Eastern University, in Pennsylvania, aims to refute claims to biblical inerrancy, asserting that the Bible is not a rule book or an instructional manual, but a book that should be read for situations in the here and now, recognizing that those who wrote it crafted the stories for their own times. Enns's humorously snarky style is evident in both text and performance. Fans of Rob Bell (WHAT IS THE BIBLE?) and the late Rachel Held Evans (INSPIRED) will appreciate what he has to say.
