Why The Bible is a Terrible Book
(and worth reading on a regular basis)
A Sermon by Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson
"Read literally, the Bible can be a terrible book: a bullying patriarchal God who justifies slavery, rape, the marginalization of women and people with special needs. Shouldn’t we just close the Book of Books and run away? Rabbi Artson shows a better way: armed with a vision of justice, love, and peace, the Bible becomes the world’s most powerful tool for the dignity of all people, for living harmoniously with our planet, and for a vision of universal peace. We just need to learn to read it right!"
