To the person of faith who silently wonders if the Bible-the "Living Word"-may need CPR. To the quiet believer who feels confused or put off by the anger and vileness of the "Because the Bible says so" crowd yet feels drawn to the humane and merciful Jesus of scripture. To the tender-hearted who empathize with a God whose tears stain the scrolls. This book is for you. The best teachers and mentors in my life had an affinity for taking something familiar, lifting it up, and turning it ever so slightly so I could see from a fresh perspective - allowing new insight and meaning. I'd welcome the opportunity to choose some familiar passages of the Bible, lift them up, and turn them ever so slightly so you can see them from a fresh perspective. You'll find that the "Living Word" is just fine-and just maybe, so are you.
