Sacred...>The Bible  >Genesis Verse-by-Verse:  A new online tool to STUDY Genesis ...not to malign the Bible by opinion only


Here's another Bible Study Guide on Genesis:


www.agapebiblestudy.com/Genesis/Genesis_...



All the statistics would overwhelmingly imply that far fewer people are reading the Bible with the jaundiced eye the the inerrantist, the fundamentalist, or the bibliolator. 


Consequently, the Bible may now be receiving the attention that it has always deserved, and by people with a love of history and truth, rather than fear-inspired superstition which results in the need for some powerful attachment figure who will take care of them. 


People, especially the young, can now read the Bible the same way they read the Illiad, the Ramyana, or the Popol Vuh. While they are all part of the rich human heritage, one wouldn't want to extract ones morals or ethics from them.

....Bible may now be receiving the (MORE?) attention that it has always deserved...


Yep...


1. translations into multiple languages and versions


2. access by the internet


3. accelerated scholarly study by ALL points of view


4. the "good news" must be spread to the Spirit of Man

Same with the Illiad, the Ramyana, and many other of the ancient works of man.


2. access by the internet


Yep, including the above.


3. accelerated scholarly study by ALL points of view


Yes, same again with those other writings.


4. the "good news" must be spread to the Spirit of Man


Well, not much of it  - the Bible, the Illiad, the Popol Vuh, the Zend Avesta, etc - is really "news". More like old letters or ancient pot shards that provide interesting insights into old cultures and the human mind. Part of the human story of us all.
