- 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.
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.

Marsha Escandon5 Stars Out Of 5May 5, 2010Marsha EscandonFor 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!
