In the Beginning: Bibles Before the Year 1000 The Bible has been called the best-selling book of all time, though the term itself comes from biblia, Greek for a collection of books. The Bible developed gradually, over many centuries, as the result of cultural interaction and exchange among many different societies. Over time, some texts were accepted as part of the canon of belief, while others were excluded as apocryphal and heretical. Out of this rich diversity and cultural complexity emerged the modern Bible. In the Beginning: Bibles Before the Year 1000 tells the story of this formative period. The exhibition brings together a rare assemblage of several important early Hebrew and Christian bibles—the first time many of these fragile treasures have been shown to the public. From fragile fragments of papyrus and humble early parchment codices to resplendent illuminated manuscripts, In the Beginning presents the physical evidence of the earliest versions of both Bible and book.

In my early years of ministry people actually had to be intentional with their criticism because it usually required writing and mailing letters. Today, email allows critical people instant access to attack your heart. My post on April 1 created a lot of interaction (I WISH THIS WAS AN APRIL FOOLS’ COMPLAINT) and I thought I’d write about how I deal with criticism. First, here are a few, broad principles that I’ve come to embrace about criticism: >Criticism is synonymous with leadership >>Criticism has terrible timing >>>Many critical comments originate in a critical heart rather than a constructive, caring heart. Here’s how I typically respond to the shots that are directed at me. 1. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people say, “You’ve got to have the skin of a rhino and the heart of a lamb to be in ministry.” 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. I’m definitely not the expert on criticism!

To begin with: C is bound by the Koran to honor the religions of the book – at the very least, T and X. Some don’t, but most do; you’re far better off being T or X than atheist in most muslim nations. O posits, I think accurately, that most members of C, as well as T, X, and E, are probably decent people, or at the least, that their decency or lack thereof is not a product of their affiliation to that group. Your description of E makes me feel positively ill. O does not invariably support C over X. X’s existence is threatened by conflict with some members of C, yes. You don’t think T poses as much of a threat as any of the others? But it’s all beside the point. Way to go, T.
