Seized by Truth

Full Product Description

We read the "Bible" and interpret Scripture in order to live in grace-filled relation to God's divine purpose. When we approach the "Bible" as Scripture, author Joel Green, takes seriously, the faith statement that the "Bible" is our Book; these scriptures are our Scripture. We are not reading someone else's mail - as though reading the "Bible" had to do foremost with recovering an ancient meaning intended for someone else and then translating its principles for use in our own lives.When we recall that we are the people of God to whom the bible is addressed as Scripture, we realize that the fundamental transformation is not the transformation of an ancient message into a contemporary meaning, bur rather the transformation of our lives by means of God's Word. This means that reading the "Bible" as Scripture has less to do with what tools we bring to the task, however important these may be, and more to do with our own dispositions as we come to our engagement with Scripture. We come not so much to retrieve facts or to gain information, but to be formed and ultimately, transformed.
Scripture does not present us with texts to be mastered but with a Word, God's Word, intent on mastering us, on shaping our lives.
