Vision or nightmare?

Some readers will know that earlier this year I became a proud and nervous adoptive parent to…the Bible. Its a dangerous world out there for my fledgling little word, and there are many challenges facing it. Just yesterday James Poulter pointed out this little gem from the Prospect Magazine to me.



As a pastor and occasional teacher I’m all for interactivity – but maybe this is a bridge too far. Can you imagine what would happen if we took this kind of approach to the Bible? If we became so interactiive that we actually changed its content, drawing its teeth and dulling its challenges to suit our mood – that would be disastrous.

That said – any machine with a button which untangles Dan Brown has to have some advantages!
