Like a play, Scripture is a text that needs to be rehearsed, says
Anna Carter Florence. We can study it carefully. We can listen to
sermons and read up on experts. But in the end, Scripture is meant to be
encountered—and we do this work best when we do it in community.
this book Florence offers concrete practical tools for reading and
encountering Scripture in groups. She shows how rehearsing the text
together enables us to find our script, or place, in Scripture and
better apprehend biblical truth for our lives. Her reading strategies
are fresh, easy to grasp, and very adaptable to a variety of contexts.
Suitable for new and seasoned Bible readers alike, Florence’s Rehearsing Scripture invites
groups and churches to move beyond doctrinal differences as they gather
around a shared text and encounter God anew together.
