The Brazos Bible Interpretation Collection provides fresh insights for exploring and understanding Scripture. These three works examine challenges in modern biblical interpretation and applying the Bible to life today. All skilled writers, the authors are also theologians, pastors, sociologists, and social workers—the rich pool of perspectives they offer equips readers with new ways to approach their Bible study.
In The Bible Made Impossible, sociologist Christian Smith provides a critique of evangelical biblicism, arguing that if it worked as its proponents say it should, there would not be the vast variety of interpretive differences that biblicists themselves reach upon interpreting the Bible. In Flawed Families of the Bible, David and Diana Garland comb insights from Scripture, showing that the families of the Bible were not so different from imperfect families today. Their encouraging study examines how God worked through those imperfections to reveal hope and grace to families then, just as he does today. And lastly, in From Stone to Living Word, Debbie Blue shows how Christians have treated the Bible as an idol rather than as a “living response to a living being.” Her reflections on biblical interpretation and themes transform the familiar into something new and alive.
