 Do you want to take the Bible seriously, but wrestle with what some Scriptures say? Do you want to find meaning and purpose in the Bible for your life today? Did you watch General Conference and wonder how people can read the same Scriptures and come to completely different interpretations? Do you want to know what the Bible really says about science, violence, suffering, sexuality and relationships? Then this study is for you!

Faithful Christians continue to experience deep divisions over universal social issues, because of differences in how we understand the nature of scripture and how we should interpret it. The world's bestselling, most-read, and most-loved book can also be one of the most confusing. In Making Sense of the Bible, Adam Hamilton addresses the hot-button issues that plague the church and cultural debate, and answers many of the questions frequently asked by Christians and non-Christians alike:

Did God really command Moses to put gay people to death? Did Jesus really teach that everyone who is not a Christian will be assigned to hell? Why would Paul command women to keep silent in the church? Were Adam and Eve real people? Is the book of Revelation really about the end times? Who decided which books made it into the scriptures and why? Is the Bible ever wrong?

In this 6-week study, Hamilton addresses these often misunderstood biblical themes leading readers to a deeper appreciation of the Bible so that we might hear God speak through it and find its words to be life-changing and life-giving. (from the book description on Cokesbury)
