On Reading the Bible both Critically and Religiously

Readers may be interested in this address given by Peter Enns.

Last night (October 25, 2010), I participated in a panel discussion at the University of Pennsylvania on the challenge of reading the bible critically and religiously from the point of view of three faith traditions: Jewish, Roman Catholic, and Protestant.

Marc Brettler of Brandies University gave a Jewish perspective, Dan Harrington of Boston College gave the Roman Catholic perspective, and I was given the impossible task of giving the Protestant perspective.

The 3 papers (each 20 minutes long) were very well received and generated a lot of discussion afterwards. It is my understanding that the entire evening was recorded and will be (is?) available as a podcast.
