How To Read the Bible “Literally”

Are Christians bumpkins for reading the Bible “literally”? We are often ridiculed for understanding the Bible in a way that defies 21st century sensibilities, but what are the guidelines for interpreting it in the first place? This session will demonstrate how skeptics really don’t understand what they are asking.

Scriptural examples in this session will help you interpret figures of speech, pay attention to context, and understand various genres in the Bible. Enrich your own study and equip yourself to respond to skeptical scrutiny of the Bible.
