Roger Barkley explores one of the most challenging passages in the Bible, Deuteronomy 21:10-14. Roger shows that God is even found in Old Testament verses about claiming a defeated enemy’s daughter as your bride.
We don’t need to ignore, whitewash or explain away these kinds of passages. Among other things, understanding how God speaks through them helps us see how legalistic teaching on current issues like homosexuality entirely miss the point of what God is up to.
Roger refers to Kent Dobson’s excellent book, Bit by a Camel.
