Does the Bible Tell Me So?
by Margaret Nutting Ralph




Overview -
What does the Bible teach and what does it not teach? Does the Bible Tell Me So? addresses this question by first examining how the Bible has been misinterpreted in the past and then asking if the same mistakes are being made today. The topic of how to interpret scripture so as to correctly understand what it teaches is extremely important not only for creating unity among Christian denominations but for civil dialogue and peaceful decision making. To correctly interpret the teachings of the Bible, various contexts must be taken into consideration: the literary form the biblical author is using, the beliefs at the time of the original author and audience, and the two-thousand-year process of ongoing revelation modeled in scripture. In this book, author Margaret Nutting Ralph explains each of these three contexts and applies this method of interpretation to historical issues, demonstrating how the Bible was abused to support the deep-seated prejudices of well-meaning people of the past. She then examines this approach in relation to current issues to determine whether scripture is being misused today.
