- How has the Bible been reshaped by its translation across cultures and its reinterpretation for modern consumption? In this program, experts debate issues such as the effect of the Greco-Roman world on the Bible; the connection between sacred imagery and the Bible's text; why some newer Bibles are more accurate than the King James version; the use of the Bible to both support and condemn slavery; Amendment 18 vs. egalitarianism; translation as heresy; patriarchal vs. gender-neutral language; the impact of popular culture and new media; and the return from verbal to visual literacy.
