Read literally, the Bible can be a terrible book: a bullying patriarchal God who justifies slavery, rape, the marginalization of women and people with special needs.  Shouldn’t we  just close the Book of Books and run away? Rabbi Artson shows a better way:  armed with a vision of justice, love, and peace, the Bible becomes the world’s most powerful tool for the dignity of all people, for living harmoniously with our planet, and for a vision of universal peace. We just need to learn to read it right!
