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.
"John Burgess has written a book of immense help to the church in this time of great conflict and division. It is wise, probing, and highly readable. . . . 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
