Do you have the wrong expectations for what the Bible should be?

Purchase Access to Video Series

As questions arise, as doubts persist, what do we do with the Bible now?

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but the Bible is weird. It’s an ancient, ambiguous, and diverse book and there’s no one right way to read it. Join Pete as he explains how the Bible can lead us to wisdom rather than answers, and why that is good news. Whether you are frustratedly Christian, barely Christian, or formerly Christian – this course is intended for you.

What this video series will NOT teach you:

  • What to think about the Bible
  • How to find answers in the Bible
  • How to use the Bible as a rule book

What this video series WILL teach you:

  • How to embrace the weirdness of the Bible
  • How to adjust your expectations of the Bible
  • How the Bible can help us lead a life of wisdom

You’ll learn about:

  • The Bible’s antiquity
  • The Bible’s ambiguity
  • The Bible’s diversity

And why these are all good things!
