The surprising miracle of the Bible, which is still the best selling book in the world, is this simple fact: It was written by the hanged, by the executed, by the oppressed and downtrodden, and NOT by the executioners, NOT by the kings, NOT by the military generals or the victors. This is a very impressive feat. It is a celebration of the underdogs of history. It is the voice of the slaves, the women, the minority peoples, the pushed around, shoved around, beat up and displaced people of the world.
Greg Boyd affirms all of Scripture’s authority, saying that Jesus upholds Pentateuch as God’s inspired word and, therefore, so should we.

Enter CrossVision, Boyd’s attempt to answer this question.
