The Bible has the astounding power to transform lives. The stories of people like Francis of Assisi, Antony of Egypt, Augustine of Hippo, Martin Luther, and Martin Luther King Jr. vividly demonstrate this. Why aren't more of us transformed by Scripture today? Too often we study biblical texts without believing that God truly inhabits this book. Scripture seeks to capture our minds, not merely educate them.

In this book, Chris Webb explains that we can transform our Christian life by reading as lovers rather than as theorists. This is possible by coming to the text prayerfully, expectantly, in humility and empty-handed. When we open the Bible, it does not say to us, Listen: God is there! Instead, the voice of the Spirit whispers through each line, Look: I am here. Reading the Bible this way can reconfigure the habits of your heart, refresh your imagination and memory, reshape and redeem your emotions, realign your reality individually and communally for kingdom life, and take us beyond the Bible into a renewed way of life. Here is the work of today - which is also the work of the whole of life - to open your heart afresh to the living Word of God.

    " This came to me at a dry time w/Bible reading. The author causes you to really think and I found myself actually being more hungry and engaged with the Word as I looked references up and thought it through. If you don't have it, you should. "
