I have posted on my own blog Gentle Wisdom a two part series Is the Bible the best way to promote Christianity? – part 1, part 2. In this I discuss issues about the perspicuity of Scripture, and the barriers to understanding it, which lie behind many of the discussions we have been having here at Better Bibles Blog. It is good that we don’t discuss at BBB the theology underlying Bible translation. But these issues are important, and so I offer my blog as a place where I would welcome an appropriate discussion of them.
