In this provacative book Emerging church pastors Tim Condor and Daniel Rhodes reveal that our reading of Scripture today is held captive by our culture. Exploring the need to encounter Scripture collectively they invite us to listen in as members from their church delve into four Bible passages discussing subjects on "the obscure," "the emotive," "the familiar," and "the controversial." Ultimately, Free for All makes a compelling case for communities as valid outlets for biblical interpretation. Condor and Rhodes show how communities can provide a way for proclamation of the biblical text, liberating its voice and prompting practices of hospitality, ethics, mission, and imagination.
