working on our interpretation
October 19, 2008
We struggle with people being Christian but not engaging with the Bible (doesn’t seem to make much a differance whether they are Evangelical, Mainline, or whatever). The solutions we then seem to come up with is always to engage the Bible on behalf of Christians. Pastors read the Bible, and deliver it in well-communicated sermons with a nice message but little Bible (don’t do your exegesis on the pulpit remember).
To answer Turner’s question at the end, maybe we should give the work of interpretation back to Christians… wasn’t that what the Reformation asker?
