"The fact is that the industrial revolution has had a great impact on our ability to read and understand the Bible, and it is with this aspect of interpretation that we are fundamentally concerned. For readers of the Bible this great watershed we have passed – the "Great Transformation", as it has sometimes been called – threatens our ability to hear what the Bible once so clearly said to its earliest readers. After all, the Bible was written in an agrarian, preindustrial world where things were very different from what they are now."
