Wrestling with Parakeet Passages
Around the blogosphere there are a couple people are using Scot McKnight’s The Blue Parakeet as a springboard for wrestling with difficult section of the Bible.
Specifically, Patrick Mitchel asks if the silence passages are really the best place to go when examining the role of women in the church, and Boston Planter is facing the tough questions in the Exodus narrative.
I’ve recommended McKnight’s book to a number of people over the last year because, whether or not you agree with his conclusions, he makes you think and forces you to own up to the way we approach the Scriptures.
Have you read The Blue Parakeet on your own or taken part in a book study that used it? What were you’re impressions? What hard questions did it raise for you, or even answer?
