Product Description

Here is a new way to read scripture - a way that allows scripture to shape your spiritual life. Learn to
  • listen for the voice of God in the Bible,
  • move from informational reading to formational reading of the Bible,
  • give up "control" over the text and let God lead your reading and understanding.
An emphasis on the cognitive, purely rational approach to reading erects barriers to spiritual reading of Scripture. We have lost the ability to meditate upon the Word - to listen to God in scripture with the deepest core of our being.

In Shaped By The Word, Robert Mulholland invites you to read scripture another way. He demonstrates how to release control of the text, which is based on today's typical informational approach and to allow God to speak to the spiritual self - the formational approach. The methods Mulholland explores are classic Christian paths to spiritual formation through scripture reading, methods that have been foreshadowed by a bias for analytical Bible study.

This kind of meditation on the Word can bring you to a more vibrant relationship with God. Only through such formational reading of the Bible will you find yourself shaped by the Word.

Publisher's Description

Many people buy and read the Bible for the sake of gaining information, Robert Mulholland believes that people can read the Bible not only for information, but for formation. In this completely revised version of an Upper Room best-selling classic, Mulholland invites readers to embrace scripture in a new and more fulfilling way, letting the biblical text form our spiritual life. Mulholland's biggest hope is that people will begin to open themselves so they may regularly encounter God in reading the Bible.

Dr. Mulholland examines the obstacles often encountered in spiritual reading. These obstacles include the attitudes that we bring to reading the Bible -- our view of self, our view of the Bible, our relationships with others. As Mulholland writes about these obstacles, he offers a gentle pastoral voice that guides the reader to meet God anew. Readers will grow spiritually as they read and digest Mulholland's insights into the ways we meet God in scripture.

    For years, I have watched myself and others study the Bible analytically. We all know a lot about what the Bible says. Has it changed our lives? Not necessarily.In Shaped by the Word, Mulholland demonstrates the differences between studying the Bible analytically and reading it formationally. The latter changes our lives! Mulholland should be read, re-read, and read again!
