Product Description

According to Joel B. Green, when we approach the Bible as Scripture we must take seriously the faith statement that the Bible is our Book; these scriptures are our Scripture. Rather than reading someone else's mail, as though reading the Bible had to do foremost with recovering an ancient meaning intended for someone else and then translating its principles for use in our own lives. When we recall that we are the people of God to whom the Bible is addressed as Scripture, we realize that the fundamental transformation is not the transformation of an ancient message into a contemporary meaning, bur rather the transformation of our lives by means of God's Word. This means that reading the Bible as Scripture has less to do with what tools we bring to the task, however important these may be, and more to do with our own dispositions as we come to our engagement with Scripture. We come not so much to retrieve facts or to gain information, but to be formed and ultimately, transformed. Scripture does not present us with texts to be mastered but with a Word, God's Word, intent on mastering us, on shaping our lives.Joel B. Green is Professor of New Testament Interpretation at Fuller Theological Seminary with an expertise in Luke-Acts, Jesus and the Gospels, 1 Peter, James, New Testament Ethics, and Theological and Biblical Hermeneutics. A prolific author, Dr. Green has written or edited more than 25 books.
