Conversations with Scripture and with Each Other: Scriptural Formation for Lay Leaders

Conversations with Scripture and with Each Other Conversations with Scripture and with Each Other Rowan & Littlefield

M. Thomas Shaw

Rowman & Littlefield, 2008

Shaw, Episcopal Bishop of Massachusetts, offers a unique guide for Bible study.  He has organized his exquisite book around issues that matter to churches, such as conflict and outreach, and reflected on how they are similar to the concerns of the communities of the gospel writers and of Paul.

We gain a clear, up-close understanding of the history of the church's beginnings and how it shaped the scripture we read today.  This is a wonderful book for church councils, vestries, and sessions, and study groups, as well as for personal spiritual deepening.

"This is a book filled with biblical wisdom, deep spirituality, and pastoral experience. Bishop Shaw shows how we twenty-first century Christians can find in the first-century church spiritual mentors and pastoral guides for our time. Here is a hopeful book that will provide encouragement and practical counsel for any congregation or individual Christian."- The Very Reverend Samuel Lloyd III, dean of Washington Cathedral
