Theologian Thomas Jay Oord asks five questions of the Bible, in preparation for the upcoming The Bible Tells Me So conference:

1. What does it mean to say the Bible is inspired?

2. On what questions is the Bible a trustworthy guide?

3. Is the Bible without error?

4. How should we interpret the Bible?

5. Does postmodernism influence the Bible?

I found Oord’s discussion of these questions — as well as some of the comments on his post — challenging and thought-provoking.
