I am enjoying listening to James Jordan's lectures on reading the Bible at the moment. Thanks to Barb and John for drawing my attention to them. Some of the principles that Jordan presents for the proper handling of Scripture are very helpful and cut right across the individualism of our day. Perhaps one of the most important points that he makes is that, outside of the Church, the Bible is not a means of grace and will only lead to greater confusion. We have all, I am sure, seen many examples of this in action. I would also highly recommend Jordan's article 'Apologia on Reading the Bible', found in this past issue of Contra Mundum.
