We continue our series on walking through deconstruction without losing your faith, interviewing Dr. Dennis Edwards about learning to read and understand Scripture after you’ve deconstructed a naïve, “magical” picture of the Bible.
Dennis holds an M.Div. from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and has done post-graduate studies in Theology at Fordham University. He holds a Ph.D. in Biblical Studies from The Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C., and has been on the adjunct faculty of Bethel Seminary, North Park Seminary, and St. Mary’s Ecumenical Institute (where he was a distinguished lecturer).
This interview is brought to you in partnership with Missio Alliance and Herald Press. Dr. Edwards’ book What is the Bible and How Do We Understand It? is out now from Herald Press as a part of their series The Jesus Way: Small Books of Radical Faith. To learn more about this book and how you can use The Jesus Way series in your church visit missioalliance.org/heraldpress
