Every Christian desires to follow the Bible. But many of the things the Bible teaches---such as its instructions on how to treat slaves or its direction to sell everything one owns---seem to have little relevance to modern life. Picking and choosing what applies today leaves many readers frustrated and confused. Is it possible that Christians are asking the wrong question of Scripture? Ron Martoia suggests that the narrative sweep of the Bible is lost when it is reduced to quips and maxims. Faithfulness to the text requires faithfulness to its narrative form. Reflecting a high view of Scripture and a profound belief in its power to change lives, Martoia helps readers read the Bible so that its story shapes their own stories. In this new light, readers can move beyond the confusion about what is true today and what is 'outdated.' With a passion for seeing people experience revolutionary change in their spiritual lives, Martoia shows readers how to look at the big picture of the Bible. As they will soon find out, the view is incredible.Editorial ReviewsReview'Ron Martoia is a deep and elegant thinker and a clear and engaging writer. Not only do I love what he writes, but I've had the chance to see him in action, leading groups and creating space for people to think, learn, discover, and grow. Reading this book feels like being in a group facilitated by Ron, so I know it will help people rediscover the Bible and find their place in its ongoing, life-transforming, world-changing drama.' -- Brian McLaren, author/speaker brianmclaren.net From the Back CoverEvery Christian desires to follow the Bible.
