BAR 37:06, Nov/Dec 2011
Queries & Comments
You have one of the best periodicals in the world. I love it. But I do not understand the faithful of any religion who read BAR expecting it to confirm their beliefs. Nor do I understand those minimalists who detest evidence possibly supporting Biblical events.
Like a good lawyer, you present evidence, facts, theories, and analysis and leave it to the (jury) readers to draw their own conclusions. And, as any good jury, the readers have a responsibility to listen to the evidence and weigh it. BAR is not a movie; it assumes a level of sophistication of its readers.
