Item Description...
This book is about how the church reads scripture - and how, in a time of theological and ethical uncertainty, the church can maintain different readings of scripture without degernating further into ideological warfare. In a stirring final chapter, John Burgess explores the possibility of resolving concrete differences in the current hotbutton issues of the church. He contends that adopting the attitude of the "piety of the Word" has the power to help unify disparate voices - despite the current hostilities found in every denomination.

Publishers Description

A combination of authentic piety and remarkable scholarship characterize this book, which is full of concrete suggestions for persons and and congregations. --Douglas W. Oldenburg, Moderator, 210th General Assembly, Presbyterian Church (USA) and President of Columbia Theological Seminary

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Bible Study  Jan 18, 2008
Transformational - moving from scholarly Biblical study to serious personal interaction with Scripture. Asks a good question: What exactly is a holy book? Points out how the "enlightenment mentality" and legalistic thinking has inhibited our enjoyment of the Bible.
