I shouldn't have been surprised, but it was eye opening to learn about how certain groups influence biblical content. They shape the Bible that we see, and, by extension, the messages that we get from it. That is why gay people have so much trouble in church. That would have been good as a separate book.
The Kindle Edition has no links in its Table of Contents, and no index. It makes navigating difficult. The books of the New Testament are cluttered together, and lack introdutions. Some passages are so heavily laden with contemporary text that they are hard to recognize.
This book could have stopped at chapter two.
That said, the TNIV is still highly reliable on most scriptural cases, although the final authority would go the the NASB. The TNIV would never support a homosexual-friendly reading of the Bible. It is only severe contextualization on the part of the authors that makes it somewhat palatable. To put it bluntly, they're painting over the brick of scripturally incoherent theology with a sugary posthumous shellacking of icing and begging you to take a bite.
Expect stories of how David and Jonathan were lovers (A testably false claim as the Bible goes to great length to describe their relationship as foster-brothers rather than lovers. It's only a healthy dose of implications and inferences coming from the 21st century applied to this story that could ever turn it into a gay-friendly tale.
Also, expect the argument that explicit verses condemning homosexuality such as Leviticus 18:22 as simply dealing with neighboring nations who used underage boys as sexual oracles in temples. Expect the same for Paul's upholding of this law in his letter to Corinth.
Failing to promote this understanding, the authors may attempt to circumvent by claiming this law is one of the many discarded when God declares all of the unclean clean, however this is wrong. God forbode homosexuality to all humans, not just the Isralites.Read more ›
