The Word in Place : Reading the New Testament in Contemporary Contexts Paperback / softback
Louise Lawrence introduces you to contextual Bible reading, which prioritizes the question 'what does the Bible mean to you in your context?'.
She provides a practical resource that will enable you to initiate such readings within your own context.
Examples of readings from a range of contexts are given, including reading with a group from an urban regeneration area, reading with a rural village, reading with priests and reading with deaf people.
Tips and resources for how to run your own contextual Bible reading are also given enabling you, and your community, to read the Bible in a new light.
