The Great Bible Experiment - Providence, RI

What word comes to mind when you think of the Bible?

Some think of sacred, holy words—words of truth, comfort, and inspiration. Some think of words indicating confusion, question, and doubt. Others think of words of exclusion, bigotry, and restrictive laws. And a growing number of people prefer not to think about it at all.

This series of town-hall style discussions about the Bible is traveling to four cities that surveys claim are the least “Bible-minded” in America. Presented by the Massachusetts Bible Society, we will have real talk about this book that is both the bestselling book in the world and the most challenged. This program is made possible in part by an award from The BTS Center. The statements made and views expressed are solely those of the participants.
