Reviews - What do customers think about Reading In Communion?
Little to add Feb 9, 2007
I can add little to the comprehensive review above. From a Lutheran perspective, and ethical point of view, it is a must read for the fomation of community and character. In my estimation it is weak sacramentally, which is where I believe ethics flow from, however there are many, many fine insights in this work. Anyone serious about Christian ethics should read this book.
Best book on practical hermenutics Jun 4, 2004
It's a shame that this book is no longer in print. There is no book I would recommend higher regarding hermeneutics. This book does not deal with the philosophical and technical questions that leave most people bewildered when thinking about the relation of scripture to our life today, but focuses instead on the importance of wisdom and character in our reading of the text in our churches. Hauerwas was right, the chapters on Bonhoeffer and Jeremiah are worth the price of the book alone. I recommend that you scour used book stores to find this book.
