Description

Providing an insight into why the Bible is a spiritual and moral source relevant and useful for all people of faith and good will rather than a rule book of "do's" and "don't's", Linda M MacCammon maintains that the Bible is best read not as a rule book but as a text with stories that reveal truth claims and provide examples of how we should live. Liberating the Bible clarifies the nature and purpose of the Bible, examines principal stories from both testaments, and emphasizes how the two testaments reveal God's plan for salvation for all people and serve as a model for leading a moral and spiritual life. The chapters include explanatory side bars, study questions, and suggested readings. Accessible to a broad audience without resorting to scholarly jargon, Liberating the Bible is appropriate for undergraduates as well as adult study groups.
