Unfortunate Words of the Bible

  • By G. P. Wagenfuhr
Product Description
What do unicorns, law, love, and hell all have in common? They are all unfortunate words of the Bible. Through mistranslation, cultural shifts, anachronisms, and misguided intentions, this book traces several key words whose meaning is commonly misunderstood in our world today. If the blatant mistranslation of unicorns could survive in the Bible for thousands of years, securing their place in our cultural imagination to this day, what would happen if important words, like salvation, were misunderstood? How might our cultural imaginations hide the meaning of the Bible rather than revealing it? By tearing down misunderstandings, Wagenfuhr builds up a broad overview of the story of the Bible that illustrates a more mature and more exciting vision for Christian faith(fulness) than is commonly assumed. G. P. Wagenfuhr (PhD, University of Bristol, UK) is the Theology Coo dinator for ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians, and an ordained church planter. He is the author of Plundering Egypt: A Subversive Christian Ethic of Economy (2016) and numerous articles and book chapters.
