NEW VISION FOR AN OLD : WHY THE BIBLE MIGHT NOT BE THE BOOK YOU THINK IT IS by ANNE ROBERTSON
DescriptionANNE ROBERTSON Foreward by Will Willimon When Anne Robertson asked a bunch of people on the street what came to mind when they heard the wordBible, she was met with a flood of mixed responses--words likewisdom,lies,faith,rules,ancient history,bigotry,poison, and many more. What she realized was that we all read the Bible through filtered lenses, according to our varied expectations of what the Bible is or should be. But, says Robertson, the Bible as a whole is primarily God'sstory--a story of relationship, community, and love. Robertson'sNew Vision for an Old Storygives readers the right lenses to see beyond the printed page to the God who encounters us in dynamic relationship and transforms our lives. The very nature and message of Scripture are rooted in incarnation. When we need to navigate community, truth, fear, and suffering, the Bible-- God's own story--can guide us through it all. Paperback 176 pages Anne Robertsonis a United Methodist Church minister currently serving as executive director of the historic Massachusetts Bible Society. She is also the author ofGod with Skin Onand the popular curriculumExploring the Bible: The Dickinson Series.
