The Bridget

Index Published by Chris Tover May 12, 2005

The Bridget is an e-journal of opinion. Mine!
And I am not afraid of controversy.

About Bridget

This e-journal is dedicated to the memory of my mother. To her family and friends she left a legacy of moral, social, and political activism.

The Bridget will present my views on Old Testament topics from a liberal perspective. I offer my views in order to stimulate discussion, debate and controversy in the hope that this will lead to a better understanding of the Scriptures. I have published these essays in a printer-friendly format:

My Manifesto
Why I am going way out on the proverbial limb.

Where do Morals Come From?
Abraham teaches God a lesson in moral philosophy.

In Defense of Haman
Traces the ethnic conflict between Haman and Mordacai back through Samuel and Agag to its origin in the Exodus.

Living Biblical Principles
Can we live by biblical principles in today's world?

A Critique of the NIV Study Bible
Evaluates the NIV Study Bible against the HarperCollins Study Bible and the Jewish Study Bible.

What Everyone Knows
... but me.

In future issues I will publish more articles such as:
