Book Review :: The Art of Reading Scripture, Ellen F. Davis & R. Hays
Edited by Ellen F. Davis and Richard B. Hays
Eerdmans. Have we forgotten how to read the Bible? How do we read the Scriptures in light of their original meanings and the current culture in which we live? A host of scholars and teachers offer their insights into how we can read the Bible in a post-modern context. While this book is not for light reading, it does address the essential truth that the Scriptures are not a therapeutic self-help manual but first and foremost the story of God's gracious rescue of our lost world. A good reminder when we are tempted to water down the Scriptures to make people feel better.
