One of a series of 6 small books dealing in a short and accessible way with the key concerns for Christians. Again and again, we hear that such-and-such an opinion is not ?biblical?, implying that the Bible speaks with a unified voice on any matter. With humour and examples drawn from art and life, Helen-Ann Hartley argues that our reading of this varied collection of writings has to be generous, not exclusive. To appreciate fully the Bible?s richness and diversity, we have to wrestle critically and creatively with themes that attract us and repel us. Not only should we draw meaning from the Bible, we must let our lives contribute meaning to the stories it tells, engaging in conversation with those stories and allowing them to urge us into being ? to think, speak and act. Ultimately, to make sense of the Bible, we need to make sense of who we are in relationship to God.
