Theology On Mission Podcast #9: The Word Became…a Book?

20 Years Ago, I (Geoff) said to my dad: “Inerrancy doesn’t matter anymore. It is all about interpretation now!”

Continuing to explore what it might mean to “Get Off The Train” of the fundamentalist/progressive dichotomy, in this new episode Fitch and Holsclaw talk about the Bible: [soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/221070865″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]

Even if the Bible is inerrant, how are we going to interpret it? And who? Inerrancy and interpretation make up the two parts of this new episode of “Theology on Mission.” Questions are tackled by Fitch and Holsclaw in this new episode. Beyond a “book of truths” or a “library of experiences”, beyond the conservative/progressive divide, God speaks to us through Scripture, interpreting us as we interpret it.
