The Bible should come with a warning label on the cover – Caution: Misreading this text can cause confusion, intolerance, ignorance, and even violence. If we are to avoid this danger, there are a number of ways we should NOT read the Bible.

Acclaimed biblical scholar Scott Lewis, SJ wants to help Christians approach the Bible with (renewed) confidence so they can explore for themselves the richness of Scripture and grow in faith. Too often, the Old and New Testament are interpreted literally or taken out of context. Lewis guides us on ways to read the Bible in a world where overly simplified and glib answers and approaches abound. At the same time, he helps us see why reading the Bible is more important than ever.Scott Lewis SJ
