Taking the Fear out of Bible Reading - Book launch

How to Read the Bible (without switching off your brain)

by Simon J. Taylor

How to read the bible

£9.99 • paper • ISBN 978 0 281 07380 1• 17 September 2015

 The book will be launched at Evensong in the Cathedral on Sunday 13th September at 6.00pm with drinks following the service.

Copies of the book will be available at a special launch day price!

This book offers Bible reading for everyone. It speaks to those who already read the Bible but find themselves asking why; and to those who don’t read the Bible but would like to if only it weren’t so strange. It explains what the Bible is, offers an overview of what is found in it, and addresses questions people ask, such as:

  • Does science disprove the Bible?
  • Why is there so much violence in the Bible?
  • What does the Bible say about sex?

The author also presents an account of reading the Bible in the context of a life of faith and suggests how the Bible might be integrated with a life of prayer.
