1. Introduction

Summary: The Bible is not a weapon but rather a gift or an instrument of healing. The problem is how we read the Bible (so we can avoid the atrocities committed by people who claim the Bible is their book). Just as world maps distort either shapes or sizes when a globe is reduced to a flat surface, so our “map” of the Bible has often been distorted – leading to death and destruction rather than abundant life. When we say the Bible is a “two-edged sword”, it needs to be a surgeon’s scalpel rather than be used as a mugger’s knife.
