During this short series in the month of June, we’re looking at How to Read the Bible. Author Pete Enns uses three words to describe the way the Bible ‘works’: that it is ancient, ambiguous and diverse.
Throughout the series, we’ll be updating this page with suggested readings and other resources to help you as you dive into this topic personally, and discuss with your neighbours’ group.
