the bible is alive and kickin’, y’all

It is that sort of adventure with the Bible that we are looking for, the adventure of staring at the Bible’s words on paper only to find ourselves drawn into the story itself. We feel it, taste it, hear it, and come to know it with such perspective and depth that it renews us. That kind of renewal gives us courage to begin living it all over again in our world, but in a new way for a new day. This is the way of renewal. -Scot McKnight, The Blue Parakeet, a book I’m reading for my upcoming seminary class
