We stumbled upon a show called Tapestry on CBC radio while making our way home from Arborfield this afternoon. The host interviewed David Plotz about his new book and his experiences in researching and writing it.

We found 2 things especially fascinating:
Listening to his observations and wry commentary on some of the Bible's shocking texts; and
Listening to him correct the interviewer and her profound unfamiliarty with the Bible
Mr Plotz has clearly taken a big step into new terrain on his journey of faith. Would that more of the Christians who have sampled too little of the bizarre, hilarious, disturbing, marvelous, inspiring and life-changing Bible would follow his lead.
