There are plenty of different Bibles to choose from. Roman Catholics, Orthodox Christians and Protestants all use different versions of Scripture. But did you know that some Bibles come with more than just differences in translation? As Timothy Beal points out, some Bibles come with “values added” that weren’t in the original text that change the meaning of the Bible. Check out the work of the Conservative Bible Project for an example of this.
“Timothy Beal is the author of “The Rise and Fall of the Bible: The Unexpected History of an Accidental Book.” He is the Florence Harkness Professor of Religion at Case Western Reserve University.”
“LtQ Clips” offer thought-provoking observations and comments on spirituality and religion from prominent authors, scholars, and thinkers. These excerpts from“Living the Questions” curriculum are designed to spark conversation in questioning the dominant pop theology of American Christianity.
