Blogging the Bible

David Plotz is a writer for the online magazine Slate. He has begun this week to "blog the Bible." As a Jew, he grew up learning about it, but he admits he knows less of it than he should, so he's starting from the beginning and he'll be posting his thoughts on each passage on Slate. He is not out to prove or disprove anything, and he openly welcomes challenges or alternate interpretations to his questions. It's been an interesting read so far, as he's 19 chapters into Genesis. Here is the article where he explains himself. Here is his first installment from Creation to the Flood. Finally, here is the latest installment up through Genesis 19. Check it out.
