By Siegfried Zimmer

Wie soll guy die Bibel lesen und verstehen? Zahlreiche Christen lehnen die Bibelwissenschaft ab, weil sie aus ihr großen Schaden für ihren Glauben befürchten. Professionelle Theologen dagegen wollen den wissenschaftlichen Umgang mit der Bibel nicht mehr missen.
Während es die christlichen Kirchen schon lange gelernt haben, aufeinander zuzugehen und sich trotz aller Unterschiede zu achten, begegnen sich die Christen der Aufklärung und die Christen evangelikaler Ausrichtung mit gegenseitigen Abwertungen.
Zimmer spricht von zwei Lagern, die sich aus den gegensätzlichen Reaktionen auf die Bibelwissenschaft ergeben. Er warnt vor der Gefahr der gegenseitigen Abgrenzung, die zu Entfremdungen und Feindbildern führt. Als Vertreter der Wissenschaft möchte er den evangelikal orientierten Schwestern und Brüdern die Hand reichen und beginnt ein Gespräch sowohl über Entstehung und idea der Bibel wie auch über ihre Stellung zu Gott und zu seinem Sohn Jesus Christus.
