Biblical scholar Scott Lewis wants to help Christians approach the Bible with a (renewed) confidence to explore themselves the richness of what scripture might tell them. Too often, as the title suggests, scriptures are approached incorrectly, whether interpreted literally or taken out of context. Lewis wants to guide readers on approaches to reading the bible in world where too simple and too glib answers and approaches abound. At the same time, Lewis wants to show the reader why reading the bible is still important today, perhaps more than in the recent past.Scott Lewis SJ
