The Bible Tells Me So

What if the Bible is fine just the way it is? Not a well behaved Bible, where everything lines up and makes sense, but the messy, troubling, and weird Bible we actually have? What if the Bible doesn’t need to be protected and defended, but understood–just as it is? What if the real problem isn’t the Bible but the false expectations we sometimes bring to it? Perhaps, when we let the Bible be the Bible rather than what we expect it ought to be–or need it to be–we will find a deeper faith in the process. We hope these films with biblical scholar Peter Enns around the chapters in his book, The Bible Tells Me So will stir your imagination, deepen your trust in God, and that the Bible comes alive in new ways for you and your community. 

"This is a book that every Christian will be the better and richer for having read.” — Phyllis Tickle, author of The Great Emergence|
