Like a play, Scripture is a text that needs to be rehearsed, says Anna Carter Florence. We can study it carefully. We can listen to sermons and read up on experts. But in the end, Scripture is meant to be encountered—and we do this work best when we do it in community.
In this book Florence offers concrete practical tools for reading and encountering Scripture in groups. She shows how rehearsing the text together enables us to find our script, or place, in Scripture and better apprehend biblical truth for our lives. Her reading strategies are fresh, easy to grasp, and very adaptable to a variety of contexts.
Suitable for new and seasoned Bible readers alike, Florence’s Rehearsing Scripture invites groups and churches to move beyond doctrinal differences as they gather around a shared text and encounter God anew together.
