Animate V: Bible | A Book Like No Other

With Lauren Winner

Why read the Bible? This is Lauren Winner's central question.

For Lauren, an avid reader, there remains something odd about the way Christians read the Bible. Why do we keep turning to the same stories in search of some new revelation?What is it about the Bible that makes it worth repeated reading? What gets in our way as we read the Bible and try to make sense of it?

These are issues the church has wrestled with for centuries and yet we keep at it. We keep coming back to this book and its strange narrative full of plagues and miracles and destruction and rebirth. So why do we do it?

Lauren Winner

Lauren broke onto the Christian scene with her 2002 book, Girl Meets God, in which she chronicles her conversion first to Orthodox Judaism, then to Christianity. She is an assistant professor of Christian spirituality at Duke Divinity School, and a priest associate at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Durham, North Carolina.

She has appeared on PBS's Religion & Ethics Newsweekly and has written for The New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post Book World, Publishers Weekly, Books and Culture, and Christianity Today.
