Description

Reading the Bible is one thing. Understanding how the Bible came to be and how it can guide our faith and life? That's quite another.

Dennis R. Edwards offers a succinct and profound investigation of Scripture. By holding up Jesus as the interpretive key and inviting us to read the Bible with the marginalized, Edwards challenges us to a Christ-centered approach to hermeneutics. What does it mean to read the Bible with Jesus at the center? How does Scripture illuminate the work of God in the world? Edwards shines light on contemporary debates about the Bible and calls us to faithful, loving interpretations and applications of the Word of God.

The Jesus Way: Small Books of Radical Faith delve into big questions about God's work in the world. These concise, practical books are deeply rooted in Anabaptist theology. Crafted by a diverse community of internationally renowned scholars, pastors, and practitioners, The Jesus Way series helps readers deepen their faith in Christ and enliven their witness.

  • Accessible Jesus-centered theology from an Anabaptist perspective
  • Designed for use by individual readers, small groups, and Christian education classes
  • Glossary of terms, illustrations, and discussion and reflection questions in each volume
