Wie soll guy die Bibel lesen und verstehen? Zahlreiche Christen lehnen die Bibelwissenschaft ab, weil sie aus ihr grossen Schaden fur ihren Glauben befurchten. Professionelle Theologen dagegen wollen den wissenschaftlichen Umgang mit der Bibel nicht mehr missen.Wahrend es die christlichen Kirchen schon lange gelernt haben, aufeinander zuzugehen und sich trotz aller Unterschiede zu achten, begegnen sich die Christen der Aufklarung und die Christen evangelikaler Ausrichtung mit gegenseitigen Abwertungen.Zimmer spricht von zwei Lagern, die sich aus den gegensatzlichen Reaktionen auf die Bibelwissenschaft ergeben.
