Christians confess faith in Jesus Christ, the living Word of God 'according to the scriptures' - the Word of God written. Yet sharp differences today over how these scriptures are used are dividing churches, not least across the Anglican Communion. The book speaks to this situation through four 'case studies' that explore: What the scriptures are physically and how these changes affect our reading the scriptures. How does the Bible use war-words and male and female terms for God? What does the biblical motif of blood mean today, whether in the human experiences of menstruation and circumcision, or in relation to sacrifice and atonement? How do the scriptures speak of God's no and yes, and how does this shape our discerning of what is ultimately true, right and good?
