Misreading Scripture With Western Eyes


One of the bigger revelations I experienced after I started getting involved in multicultural ministry was just how American or Western my interpretation of the Bible has been. When it comes to faith and ministry, why do I (or we) do what I (or we) do? Is it because of what the Bible says? Because of what American or Western church leaders think the Bible says? Or is it because it's just what Americans or Westerners do and have always done?


I helped lead a Sunday school class read this book (including some non-Western Christians), and it was informative and edifying for all. We weren't desperately looking in Scripture for cold hard facts and objective applications anymore. Rather, we were seeing Scripture's beautiful transcendent truth. Book is available in our resources section!
