The world of the Bible is quite different from our own. According to Thomas Renquist, it's a topsy-turvy world where guests become hosts, where masters are turned into servants, where hoarders are transformed into givers, where peace-making is experienced as piece-making. And, says Renquist, the biblical world changes us because we begin to look at our own world in a different way ... seeing things from God's point of view.
