Rehearsing Scripture: discovering God’s word in community
Popular preacher Anna Carter Florence explores how to read, encounter and interpret Scripture as it was originally intended – by doing so collectively with others. Drawing on practices from drama and the theatre, she shows how to bring familiar texts to life, uncovering meaning and better apprehending biblical truth for daily life. Her methods are illuminating, easy to grasp, and easily adaptable to a variety of contexts – ideal for study group leaders and pastors seeking to bring the Bible and the real lives of congregations into conversation.
Full of helps for preachers especially, Rehearsing Scripture invites groups and churches to gather around a shared text and encounter God anew together.
