I am an atheist. I’m also the only member of my family (all of whom are good Minnesota Lutherans) to have read the entire bible, bothered to become conversant with both biblical history and historiography, and learned a lot about theology. I note this (not entirely) as an exercise in self-congratulation, but as an example (one of many) of how much Bergman affected me. This man was just plain important.
