Full video recording of the conversation between Luigi Gioia and Nick Mercer on April 14 2021


  1. Does God talk through Scripture? How?

  2. I feel that I do not need to go to Church.The only thing that matters in Christian life is reading Scripture by myself.

  3. I only listen to Scripture in Church. Should I feel guilty about it?

  4. How does Scripture tell me what to do in my life, especially when I have a difficult decision to make?

  5. I have never engaged with Scripture. What is the best way to start?


  1. Dedication to the first edition of the King James Version of the Bible: “The Translators to the Reader.”

  2. N. T. Wright, “On The Authority Of Biblical Narratives”

  3. Enzo Bianchi, “Is a spiritual approach to the Bible relevant today?”


Rachel Held Evans, Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again, Thomas Nelson 2018

One of the most enjoyable, informed and accessible books on Scripture I have ever read. It succeed in locating the divinity of the Bible in its inconsistencies, flaws, variety - that is in its humanity. One gem among countless others:

“For those who count the Bible as sacred, interpretation is not a matter of whether to pick and choose, but how to pick and choose” (Rachel Held Evans).
