The Impossible Dance – Chapter 1 – Mystery and Confusion

The purpose of this book is to not only show the unity of both Testaments and how they help make one cohesive story, but also a story into which the Church has tried, and we can try, to fit. Because the Bible is a complex collection of literature, using many literary styles and techniques and it can be difficult to understand some parts, particularly when one part seems to contradict another part. I have found a useful principal in studying the Bible which I call “Conflicts are Clues” which says that any apparent conflict or confusion in Scripture should be handled as clues to look further instead of thinking that the conflicts create contradictions which reduce the integrity of the Bible.
