Celestial Lands The Religious Crossroads of Politics, Power, and Theology

Elaine Pagels

“Conservative Christians base their convictions on the belief that the Bible is God’s word; it is immutable; it is actually what God himself said and what God meant to say. And of course they know exactly what it means. For many of them, there’s no need to think about it – much less allow for interpretation – since its meaning is obvious and simple.  That kind of belief rests on the conviction that Christianity has never changed.”
