Sam Harris and Jordan Peterson on the Bible
Dr. Christopher Kaczor
In a recent video, among the most important differences between Jordan Peterson and Sam Harris is a fundamental disagreement about the Bible. Peterson sees Scripture as pointing to deep wisdom about the value of sacrifice in making atonement with the highest good. Harris, however, see the Bible as an enormous stumbling block. He is critiquing a fundamentalist understanding of Scripture, which is itself rejected by the Catholic Church.
The Bible is the divine word in human words that reflect their human authors.
