Denominations from evangelical to mainline continue to experience deep divisions over universal social issues. The underlying debate isn't about a particular social issue, but instead it is about the ""authority of the Bible."" In Making Sense of the Bible, Adam Hamilton, one of the country's leading pastors and Christian authors, addresses the hot-button issues that plague the church and cultural debate, and answers many of the questions frequently asked by Christians and non-Christians alike.

Did God really command Moses to put gay people to death? Did Jesus really teach that everyone who is not a Christian will be assigned to hell? Why would Paul command women to ""keep silent in the church?"" Who decided which books made it into the scriptures and why? Is the Bible ever wrong? In approachable and inviting language, Hamilton addresses these often misunderstood biblical themes leading readers to a deeper appreciation of the Bible so that we might hear God speak through it and find its words to be life-changing and life-giving.

Adam Hamilton is Senior Pastor of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas, which has been named the most influential mainline church in America by The Church Report. Hamilton is the author of several books, including Enough: Discovering Joy through Simplicity and Generosity, Confronting the Controversies, and Making Love Last a Lifetime.
