Karen Armstrong returns to The Progressive Forum to discuss her new book, The Lost Art of Scripture: Rescuing the Sacred Texts. About her latest work, she writes, “Today we see the Quran being used by some to justify war and terrorism, the Torah to deny Palestinians the right to live in the Land of Israel, the Bible to condemn homosexuality and contraception … This narrow reading of scripture is a relatively new phenomenon … For hundreds of years, scripture was a means … to connect with the divine.”
