- 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.

Mulholland examines obstacles often encountered in spiritual reading and introduces a new approach to reading that will enliven the scriptures.

Readers are released to Gods initiative, allowing the scripture to form a spiritual life inside themselves.
