Overview
In "The Word", journalist Ann Monroe unveils the remarkable variety of ways the Bible is preached, taught, studied, and revered in the United States today. Based on interviews with renowned biblical scholars like Ched Myers, Walter Wink, and Marcus Borg; popular ministers like Peter Gomes, Jim Forbes, and Kay Arthur; and Bible study groups across the country, "The Word" documents the intricate mosaic of practice and belief surrounding the Bible in American culture. Monroe's odyssey explores the diversity, conflicts, and coincidences among communities of believers across denominations. Her travels take her not only geographically around the country but also theologically across the landscape of the ways faithful people approach the scriptures.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Bible in American Life -- an Investigation  Jul 31, 2005
The author reports on and analyzes the way various churches and other Christian settings view the Bible, study it and use it in life. I found very interesting the contrast of four congregations in Colorado Springs. The author attends church Bible classes, worship services and seminary course classes, then interviews various participants or leaders, for a rich, insightful perspective on the role of the Bible in the life of American Christians of various persuasions and backgrounds.
 
The best book on modern Christianity I've ever read  Sep 5, 2000
Ann Monroe has written a deeply felt exploration of modern christianity. Told with humor and respect for differing opinions, her account offers a new opportunity to examine an area of life that many have discarded as irrelevant. The Word demonstrates that this is far from the case. -- JM Kass
 
An excellent survey of the gospel in modern American culture  Jul 3, 2000
Ann Monroe's The Word explores the words of the gospel in modern American culture, analyzing how the Bible is taught and studied today. Chapters use interviews with renowned biblical scholars to consider the beliefs surrounding the Bible. An excellent survey.
