Making the Old into New Oct 4, 2001
Vol 2 of Troublesome Bible Passages continues with the valuable background, interpretations and commentary found in Volume 1. At times the commentary can be a bit off the wall in both of these works, but after all, they deal with troubling words to begin with. In using these with adult study groups, we have had provocative, sometimes even disturbing discussions. But I know we've been led to better understanding and respect for other's beliefs. A very satisfying experience that we all look forward to in the next lesson.
