Descrizione

One Woman’s Journey Back to Loving the Bible

If the Bible isn’t a science book or an instruction manual, then what is it? What do people mean when they say the Bible is inspired? When Rachel Held Evans found herself asking these questions, she began a quest to better understand what the Bible is and how it is meant to be read. What she discovered changed her—and it will change you too.

Drawing on the best in recent scholarship and using her well-honed literary expertise, Evans examines some of our favorite Bible stories and possible interpretations, retelling them through memoir, original poetry, short stories, soliloquies, and even a short screenplay. Undaunted by the Bible’s most difficult passages, Evans wrestles through the process of doubting, imagining, and debating Scripture’s mysteries. The Bible, she discovers, is not a static work but is a living, breathing, captivating, and confounding book that is able to equip us to join God’s loving and redemptive work in the world.

    Fantastic insights and really helpful.
    will return to this again

    Her perspective and intellect are a gift to the faithful yet skeptical. RHE’s writing spurred on a renaissance and maturation of American Christian thinking. She challenges the cultural norms with grace and truth. She embraced questioning biblical contradictions and this enables us to still believe in the Bible as we seek the truth.
  • (5/5)
    This was a great book to listen to, and I loved that the author also narrated it. I listened to this at work, and found myself laughing out loud a number of times. Yes, the book is centered around the author's struggle with her Christian faith, but that doesn't necessarily keep non-Christians *waves hands* from enjoying it.

    I loved how the author created stories surrounding specific bible texts. It really put flesh and bone on the stories in a fresh and interesting way. This book has helped me remember what I found so compelling about the Bible in the 1st place!

    Absolutely beautiful. Rachel has such a delightful way with words. This book is perfect for any Christian, especially those who are questioning what the Bible really says

    I can’t even begin to describe how important this book is to me. I had already purchased and read a printed copy of it, but listening to the author read it aloud was even more meaningful. My heart is broken over her passing and while I’m devastated for her family and the world that we won’t have any more books written by her, I thank God that Rachel wrote this particular book. It’s exactly what the world needs.

    I just reread this book after the passing of Rachel Held Evans. I read it last fall for the first time, but I read it just like any other book - - for enjoyment. I listened to the audiobook this time to study it. To hear her voice, knowing it's been silenced forever is both inspiring and heartbreaking. There are some very deep topics in here. This won't be the last time I read this book.
