Appreciating "Bible Wonderings"
As far as it goes, it is a wonderful, piece-by-piece journal of her observations and questions as she works her way through a reading of the Bible. There is no fundamentalism here, and no false academic sophistication either. She comes with an open mind and fresh perspective to each strange and often difficult passage of this old old collection of books. Having begun with Genesis back in January, she had just finished with the First five books, not always the easiest reading, as of her last post. "I'm having trouble getting through Numbers" she said frankly on April 7, when she discussed Numbers 1-20 (and who doesn't find Numbers a little numbing?); but on April 20 she had finished the book and had some interesting things to say about it.
I recommend reading this fascinating blog, and hope that Contemplative Scholar will consider resuming her work on it.
