it was amazing

For me the beauty of this book says a whole lot that I already know and agree with, but Pregeant has such a way with words that what he says is offered in a lovingly pastoral, yet pedagogical way. I especially appreciate one of his opening statements, wherein he argues that no one simply "reads" the Bible; we all are interpreters of Scripture, whether we realize it or not. Pregeant also deals with "hot-button" issues within the church as it has sought to interpret Scripture in such a way as to maintain good scholarship and point out the complexity of the matters at hand, but without letting anyone off the hook. This is a great text for any pastor seeking to lead a study on Biblical interpretation or for anyone who's wondering what some of the wrong reasons to read the Bible are. Enjoy!
