British Baptist minister Steve Chalke writes in his article, “Restoring Confidence in the Bible,” that the Bible has “been used to oppress black people. . . gay people . . . women . . .” Chalke invites Christians to engage in a discussion of some important questions.
Writing about the article, Tony Campolo says, “[Chalke] isn’t saying anything that hasn’t already challenged the Church. What is unique with him is that he is somebody within the Church with a deep commitment to Christ who is raising the questions and stating the issues in the way that he has.”
