My latest video production on behalf of Minnesota Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is posted below.
MVUUF’s Rev. Dr. David Breeden explains that literal interpretation of the Bible really began in the past two centuries, as science gained currency and people brought a kind quasi-scientific factual analysis to the text. Dr. Breeden asserts that the Bible’s truths are poetic in nature—but are no less “true” for that. The Bible is not, he says, intended to be a holy constitution upon which to base modern life.
