Product Description

In Having Words with God, Karl Kuhn introduces an approach to Scripture that regards Scripture as a sacred dialogue between God and humanity, and believers and one another. He shows how the Bible bears witness to an ongoing conversation which God initiates, inspires, and guides among humanity. Together, he says, believers then discern and express the character of God, God's will, and what it means to be God's people. Kuhn illustrates the various ways Scripture both embodies and invites believers into this sacred conversation and he offers practical suggestions on how readers can may make use of this approach in their own study of Scripture.
