“How To Read Your Bible” by J. Todd Billings in Christianity Today (Oct. 2011)
Reading Scripture is not about solving puzzles but discerning a mystery. Through Scripture, we encounter no less than the mysterious triune God himself. . . .
The new world into which God brings us via Scripture is wide and spacious, but it also has a specified character. It is a journey on the path of Jesus Christ by the power of the Spirit in anticipation of the final, culminating communion with the triune God. . . .
In reading the Bible, we are not the masters. We are being mastered and enlivened by the triune God” (pp. 26, 30)
