Jonathan Lee Walton | A Lens of Love

Questions of how the Bible should be read by modern Christians have never been more important than they are today. What does it mean to read the Bible through a sociohistorical lens? Can identifying the politics of its ancient Judean writers help us navigate the twenty-first century? On this episode of The Distillery, Jonathan Lee Walton discusses his book A Lens of Love: Reading the Bible in Its World for Our World. Join us as we explore the dangers of biblical literalism, unpack alternative approaches to hard-to-interpret texts, and discover how the Bible can lead us to a new moral imagination.
