In this bold, sometimes controversial, approach to the Bible, popularized in his The Bible for Normal People podcast, Enns advises us not to go to the scriptures for answers. The Bible is not a rulebook, he says, but a tool. If we approach it as a textbook for faith or a how-to manual, we will miss what is truly valuable about it. It’s not a static document, nor does it contain the literal truth. Rather, it’s a dynamic resource that, when we come to it with an open mind and allow it to set our expectations rather than fulfill them, can enrich our lives. The author of The Sin of Certainty, The Bible Tells Me So, and Inspiration and Incarnation, Enns is Abram S. Clemens Professor of Biblical Studies at Eastern University.

This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
