|Summary, etc.:||If the Bible isn't a science book, instruction manual, or position paper, then what is it? New York Times bestselling author Rachel Held Evans invites listeners on a journey of rediscovery as she explores the magic of the Bible, engaging the old, familiar stories in new ways that honor the past and enlighten the present. Is the Bible relevant to modern people of faith? This is the question Rachel Held Evans, bestselling author of Searching for Sunday, found herself asking, launching her on a quest to understand better what the Bible is and how it is meant to be read. What she discovered changed her forever. Drawing upon recent scholarship and literary analysis, Evans creatively retells our favorite Bible stories, explaining their contexts and possible interpretations, and then connects these ancient stories to our present-day ones. Using her well-honed literary instincts and experience in both evangelical and mainline Protestant traditions, Evans discovers a way of understanding that avoids noncommittal liberalism on one hand and strident literalism on the other. Listeners are invited to fall in love with Scripture all over again without checking their intellect--or their imaginations--at the door.|
