For nearly two thousand years, the Holy Bible has dominated tradition in the Western world.
Reading the Bible After Christendom invites readers to try to look at the scripture from the perspective of a world where Christianity didn't dominate the world in culture, to gain an understanding of the faith free from the influences of the world. Offering many intriguing ideas about faith and the holy word,
Reading the Bible After Christendom is a strong pick for any student of the Bible.

The book places the emphasis on Jesus as the key to reading all of Scripture, thus again following the example of the early Christians. Another feature of the book is that it provides an excellent book-by-book summary of Scripture.
As Walter Brueggemann writes in the Foreword, the book "is an invitation to critique old categories of power and truth, and to read again, and so to be empowered to live a different life in the world."
Can't argue with the First Lady of American Christianity!
