Is there only one way to interpret the Bible?
There are many ways to interpret the Bible. It can be interpreted literally, allegorically, as history, as a set of historical novels, as theology alone, and so on. With the advent of historical criticism, it is now difficult to interpret the entire Bible literally and, in any case, archaeologists have shown the impossibility of much in the Bible that was once regarded as reliable history. Nevertheless, a significant number of people still regard a literal reading of the Bible as at least one valid way to interpret it.

Why is it difficult to interpret recent history and current events?
It is difficult to interpret recent history and current events because there are numerous and variable interpretations of events and their significance. Historical research is not an exact science, so it may not be possible to uncover what actually happened. It is also difficult to see a recent or current event from an historical perspective.
