Pietersen argues that for too long the Old Testament has been the primary source for Christian ethics and the letters of Paul for Christian discipleship. Without disparaging these sources the author suggests that the church in a postmodern, post-Christian society needs to look at Scripture with a different focus. This book seeks to examine what reading the Bible might look like in the current period when the church is no longer central and the Christian story is not well known.
- Publisher.


'This is a provocative and refreshing exploration of the possibilities inherent in reading Scripture from the margins, rather than from within the compromised and rapidly receding structures of Christendom. A worthy addition to the challenging After Christendom series, Lloyd Pietersen's thoughtful work moves the discussion forward in ways that are at times controversial, at other times stretching, but at all times constructive. Highly recommended!'
- Brian Harris, Principal, Vose Seminary, Perth Australia


Publisher Description


The book gives a critical overview of the Christendom model and a thorough examination of the Anabaptist subversion of that model, showing that Jesus should be central to any reading of scripture.
