How should readers deal with all the contradictions in the Bible?

The Bible critics point out hundreds of seeming contradictions, as if that helps make their case. But such apparent contradictions don’t support them at all. If there really are contradictions, why did R (the redactor) keep them in? Actually, as we show numerous times in the book, most of the apparent contradictions disappear when the Bible is read as it’s meant to, from beginning to end, with the understanding that one scene builds on information introduced earlier — in other words, when it’s read like any other book. When read properly, the “hundreds” of problems become just a small few. We don’t have all the answers, but that’s fine. These are exactly the kinds of questions that are ripe for honest investigation.
