ENGAGING SCRIPTURE :: A Manifesto of Reading the Bible as Scripture

We often read the Bible as a text to be mastered... Yet, perhaps we should read Scripture as a text to be mastered by. We attempt to get through-the-Bible, when in reality what we really need is the Bible to get-through-us. We have been seduced into an approach to the Bible that is very informational driven, when it seems that the essence of Scripture desires to bring about an in-formational reorientation...

The following is a manifesto I put together of perhaps a more conducive posture towards engaging Scripture.

I love your blog. Apparently we have similar interests and like to read some of the same authors.
