Peter Enns 10 Things I Wish Everyone Knew about the Bible

On Faith

1. The Bible doesn’t answer all — or even most — of our questions.
2. The Bible isn’t like God’s version of Apple’s “Terms and Conditions” agreement.
3. The Bible isn’t a sourcebook for fighting culture wars.
4. The Bible doesn’t guarantee “success in life.”
5. The Bible is open to multiple interpretations, not just one meaning.
6. The Bible invites debate.
7. The Bible doesn’t “record” history objectively but interprets it.
8. The Bible was written by Jews (and at least one Gentile in the New Testament) in ancient times.
9. The Bible isn’t the center of the Christian faith.
10. The Bible doesn’t give us permission to speak for God.
