Publisher's Description

How do we communicate the message of the Scriptures in our twenty-first-century, post-Christian context? (re)Aligning with God: Reading Scripture for Church and World answers this question by presenting the Scriptures through the lens of mission and by teaching a method for reading Scripture with a missional hermeneutic. The biblical story seeks to convert us to its perspective and to transform its readers and hearers into God's missional community that exists to reflect and embody God's character to/for/in the world. Ready to revolutionize your reading of the Bible and expand your ability to unleash the Scriptures in your context? (re)Aligning with God will give you rich content and practical tools to become a profound, inspiring, and confident reader of the Bible for all who are seeking to hear its good news. ""This book . . . makes a well-argued case for reading Scripture through a missional lens and gives practical guidelines for how to do this. If this were all the book did, it would be well worth a read; but it goes a step further. It calls us to action . . . T]his isn't the most comfortable book you will ever read on the subject of hermeneutics, but it is one of the most challenging."" --Eddie Arthur, missionary blogger and writer; director of strategic initiatives for Global Connections ""What would happen if the church read its Scriptures for the sake of God's mission in the world? What would this look like? And how might we shape communities of Christ followers for whom these questions are central? Here's the long-awaited manual for those of us who are interested in missional hermeneutics. Russell shows the way. Take and read."" --Joel B. Green, Dean of the School of Theology and Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Fuller Theological Seminary Brian D. Russell (Ph.D) is Dean of the School of Urban Ministries and Professor of Biblical Studies on the Florida-Dunnam campus of Asbury Theological Seminary. He is passionate about the intersection of mission and the Bible. He is the author of The Song of the Sea: The Date of Composition and Significance of Exodus 15:1-21 (2007).
