    As a Bible scholar, ordained Baptist pastor and professor of religion Jennifer Knust says she's tired of watching those who are supposed to care about the Bible reducing it to slogans.

    As much as I can respect this view, it would interest me to hear what kinds of slogans or what sorts of ideas typify the Bible in your mind? All your biases are more than welcome here.

    I guess another thing I could ask is What are the things the Bible is really saying to us either in our lives today or in our lives as a species at any particular time? What can be learned from reading the Bible, and how does it affect us?

    Also, the article linked to is kind of interesting. If you decide to read it, give your comment on it here as well.
