Series Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes

Authors Randy Richards and Brandon O'Brien maintain that living in a Western culture can put blinders on us that affect how we read the Bible. In this two week series of conversations, they help the group remove those blinders by shedding light on the ways that Western readers often misunderstand the Eastern cultural dynamics of the Bible. You'll be fascinated at how a change in perspective can help us see even familiar passages with fresh eyes. Join the Discover the Word group as we explore how we may be "Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes."

Today on Discover the Word, we invite Randy Richards and Brandon O’Brien back to the table for a fascinating discussion about how our “cultural blinders” often affect how we read the Bible. Improve the way you read your Bible on Discover the Word!
