Keen insight for preaching and teaching Scripture are to be found in these pages. Several respected scholars here discuss how to read and live the Bible theologically in our contemporary context. Editors Michael Root and James Buckley maintain that these essays, though varied, share at least three assumptions: (1) The word of God (not necessarily human preaching and teaching) is “sharper than any two-edged sword.” (2) Preaching, teaching, and living the Bible are firmly yet delicately intertwined in the communion of saints.
