The Bible Tells Me So... Doesn't It?
A Conversation with Young Adults on the Tensions of Taking Scripture Seriously

[ news release ]

Questions for Conversation

Context

Scripture is an ancient, huge, seemingly messy archive of God's ongoing relationship with people. To discern it well we need communities alive to the Spirit and to one another. What responsibilities must we take seriously if we want to read and understand Scripture well? What does it mean to approach the Bible with deep humility and grant it authority in our lives? How can the Bible be a resource to bind and heal rather than separate us as individuals and churches?

 Join five CMU undergraduate students from diverse Christian traditions in a conversation about the Bible.
