We live in a different world from our ancestors. Conclusions that seemed self-evident now seem impossible. We grapple in ways they did not with the demands of God and the conclusions of reason. Central to the struggle is the Bible, the book that after thousands of years still ignites passions, shapes societies, and stirs souls. Who penned its words often seems less important than who reads them, and its origin less compelling than its role in changing the world.
