Does the Bible need a makeover? A group of 20 spiritual leaders from around the country thought so, and they convened recently to update the New Testament. The result combines traditional and newly discovered texts, including ancient Christian stories of women leading their own congregations. San Francisco-based Presbyterian minister Bruce Reyes-Chow was a part of this group, and he joins us to discuss the book, “A New New Testament.”

Guests:

Bruce Reyes-Chow, Presbyterian minister and founding pastor of Mission Bay Community Church

Hal Taussig, editor of "A New New Testament"; visiting professor of New Testament at Union Theological Seminary in New York
