Reading the Bible with Scot McKnight (Now What?)

In these last pages of The Blue Parakeet: Rethinking How You Read the Bible, Scot re-emphasizes the central importance in Bible reading: to follow and live the story, remembering that it is God who has graciously given it to us. We are to love God and others. So be discerning and be led. The Spirit of God is active in helping us.


It is highly important today that Christians learn how to better read and live the Bible. Scot McKnight's writing is well informed, insightful, articulate, and down to earth, and these are just a few thoughts that come to mind when describing this excellent book. Highly recommended.
