    This was a great review from Scot McKnight of Glenn Paauw’s new book. I’m in the process of reading Saving the Bible From Ourselves, and writing a chapter by chapter review for my Facebook friends. I believe this book is so important for survival of the Bible for future generations. I’ve struggled all my Bible reading life to read the Bible, much less to be transformed by it’s message. Isn’t that what’s really at stake? So thankful that The Institute for Bible Reading was developed and I look forward to reading more articles!

      Thanks Marsha. You’re right, transformation really is the goal of Bible reading. So many organizations have “transformation” in their mission statement, yet aren’t sure how to facilitate transformation besides giving people reference Bibles and hoping for the best.
