Series of interviews on what the Bible is (and is not)
Both inside and outside the “church” people are prone to understand (and misunderstand) the Bible in various ways. Because the Bible is such a central text in history and in many cultures, people who identify with any religious tradition, or none, can benefit from a deepening of their knowledge of what the various religious traditions understand and claim to be the Bible.
