Unleashing the Scripture: Freeing the Bible from Captivity to America

Hauerwas, Stanley (Fellow, 1992-93)

Nashville, TN: Abingdon Press, 1993

From the publisher's description:

This provocative critique of the uses and abuses of Scripture in the American church shows how liberal (historical-critical) and fundamentalist (literal) approaches to biblical scholarship have corrupted our use of the Bible. Hauerwas argues that the Bible can only be understood in the midst of a disciplined community of people, where the story is actually lived out by dedicated practitioners.
