Item description for Why Scripture Matters: Reading the Bible in a Time of Church Crisis by John Burgess...

This book is about how the church reads scripture - and how, in a time of theological and ethical uncertainty, the church can maintain different readings of scripture without degernating further into ideological warfare. In a stirring final chapter, John Burgess explores the possibility of resolving concrete differences in the current hotbutton issues of the church. He contends that adopting the attitude of the "piety of the Word" has the power to help unify disparate voices - despite the current hostilities found in every denomination.
