Re-Imagining the Bible for Today

Sale price$32.00


The early 21st century has seen an unexpected rise of new or rediscovered ways of reading the Bible, both in academic circles and in churches, with surprising results. These ancient texts appear to have a message that resonates with discussions in society at large. This textbook seeks to reclaim the Bible for a Christianity that is open to society and keen on participating in conversation about today's major issues; a Christianity that is relevant to the personal spirituality of people who aren't too sure what to believe and how to exercise faith.
