How to Read the Bible Book Excerpt:

Renowned religion expert and Harvard Divinity School professor Harvey Cox deepens our experience of the Bible, revealing the three primary ways we read it, why each is important, and how we can integrate these approaches for a richer understanding and appreciation of key texts throughout the Old and New Testaments. The Bible is the heart of devotional practice, a source of guidance and inspiration rich with insightful life lessons. On the other side of the spectrum, academics have studied the Bible using scientific analysis to examine its historical significance and meaning. The gap between these readings has resulted in a schism with far-reaching implications: Without historical context, ordinary people are left to interpret the Bible literally, while academic readings overlook the deeply personal connections established in church pews, choir benches, and backyard study groups. In How To Read the Bible, Cox explores three different lenses commonly used to bring the Bible into focus: Literary—as narrative stories of family conflict, stirring heroism, and moral dilemmas; History—as classic texts with academic and theological applications; Activism—as a source of dialogue and engagement to be shared and applied to our lives. By bringing these together, Cox shows the Bible in all its rich diversity and meaning and offers us a contemporary activist version that wrestles with issues of feminism, war, homosexuality, and race. The result is a living resource that is perpetually evolving as our understanding changes and deepens from generation to generation.

Saving the Bible from Ourselves Book Excerpt:

Does the Bible need to be saved? Over the course of the centuries, Bible scholars and publishers have increasingly added "helps"—chapter divisions, verses, subheads, notes—to the Bible in an effort to make it easier to study and understand. In the process, however, these have led to sampling Scripture rather than reading deeply. According to author Glenn R. Paauw, the text has become divorced from the Bible's literary and historical context, leading to misinterpretation and a "narrow, individualistic and escapist view of salvation." Rather than being a culture-shaping force, the Bible has become a database of quick and easy answers to life's troubling questions. But these deficiencies can be corrected by engaging in what the author calls "big readings." In these pages Paauw introduces us to seven new (to us) understandings of the Bible as steps on the path to recovering one deeply engaged Bible. With each "new" Bible presented, deficiencies in how we currently interact with the Bible are explored, followed by recommendations for a new practice. The Bible's transformative power is recovered when we remove the chains Christians have applied to it over the centuries. The Bible does not need to be saved because of any defect in itself, but because we have distorted and misread it. Saving the Bible from Ourselves provides students of the Bible a new paradigm for reading and living the Bible well.

How to Read the Bible Book Excerpt:

Master Bible scholar and teacher Marc Brettler argues that today's contemporary readers can only understand the ancient Hebrew Scripture by knowing more about the culture that produced it. And so Brettler unpacks the literary conventions, ideological assumptions, and historical conditions that inform the biblical text and demonstrates how modern critical scholarship and archaeological discoveries shed light on this fascinating and complex literature. Brettler surveys representative biblical texts from different genres to illustrate how modern scholars have taught us to "read" these texts. Using the "historical-critical method" long popular in academia, he guides us in reading the Bible as it was read in the biblical period, independent of later religious norms and interpretive traditions. Understanding the Bible this way lets us appreciate it as an interesting text that speaks in multiple voices on profound issues. This book is the first "Jewishly sensitive" introduction to the historical-critical method. Unlike other introductory texts, the Bible that this book speaks about is the Jewish one -- with the three-part TaNaKH arrangement, the sequence of books found in modern printed Hebrew editions, and the chapter and verse enumerations used in most modern Jewish versions of the Bible. In an afterword, the author discusses how the historical-critical method can help contemporary Jews relate to the Bible as a religious text in a more meaningful way.

The Bible Book Excerpt:

The Bible: How To Read, Understand, and Study The BibleThe Bible is an incredible book. When we are discouraged it can offer us hope, when we're afraid it can help us feel reassured, and when we're excited and brimming over with joy, it has the ability to perfectly capture what we want to say. Yet sometimes it can also be confusing. If we're honest, we don't always know how to read certain passages. For example, when Jesus says: "If I, therefore, the master and teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash one another's feet. I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do" (John 13:14-15), does this mean that we should actually wash one another's feet or that we should behave humbly with each other? Maybe at church we should have foot-washings, alongside of Bible study and evangelism classes?These are just some of the types of questions that can come up when we are trying to understand God's word. This would all be fine if we were just studying it for curiosity's sake, but chances are you also want to live it out. Whether you're a believer whose either grown up in a Christian home and come to realize how true it is, or you've recently put your faith in Jesus, and want to follow him, this is important to you. The reason is because when we love someone we want to do right by them. It is no different with our Lord. This is why the better we can understand the Scriptures, the better we will understand him, and the better we will be able to align our lives with what makes him happy. Bible Guidesis a series intended to help us learn how to better read and understand the Bible. This book gives a broad overview to the entire Bible: explaining how to read its different books so that we can read it, interpret it, and study it. Other books in the Bible Guides series will go deeper, focusing on specific books in the Bible, and giving us guidance on how they each talk and think about God. We suggest beginning with this book. If you are serious student of God's Word, this is the series for you!I promise you if you commit yourself to learning the Bible, you'll be blessed. This isn't just my word though, it's also God's:Blessed is the man who does not walkin the counsel of the wicked,Nor stand in the way of sinners,nor sit in company with scoffers.2Rather, the law of the Lord is his joy;and on his law he meditates day and night.3He is like a treeplanted near streams of water,that yields its fruit in season;Its leaves never wither;whatever he does prospers.Psalms 1:1-3The Bible: How To Read, Understand, and Study The Bible
