How should we interpret God’s word?
The Bible is the foundation of the Christian’s understanding of the world, and knowing how to interpret it is crucial to the conversation between Christianity and the sciences. The Bible is a collection of books of various literary types (genres) written across many centuries, so, in order to understand its core messages, it needs to be interpreted in light of its cultural and historical context. Literalistic interpretations of some passages of Scripture often lead to misunderstanding, fueling the myth of conflict between scientific discoveries and Christian beliefs.
