The Prescientific Bible examines issues in which the view of natural and human events held by biblical authors differs from present-day scientific understanding (such as the emergence of the landscape, earthquakes, the weather, health and illness, sudden death, gender, geopolitical changes, etc). It also suggests ways in which the modern reader can accept these differences and still find the Bible a source of spiritual nourishment.
