John Collins on biblical values and their application to now

What are biblical values? And how do they apply to public life in America today?

John Collins, Holmes Professor of Old Testament Criticism and Interpretation at YDS and the instructor of a popular YDS course on biblical values, traveled to the Chicago area to address these questions in the run-up to the 2016 election. Speaking at Winnetka Congregational Church, pastored by Jeffrey Braun ‘04 M.Div., Collins stressed that biblical values “are not the issues that have been lifted up most frequently either by church people or by politicians in recent years. Biblical values are primarily concerned with how we treat our fellow human beings.”
