Question:

What would happen if the church rediscovered the power of the Bible?

 

Answer:

If the church really got engaged with the Bible,

it would have a bigger vision of God,

a bigger understanding of human love

and the need for love between people,

a bigger understanding of justice and God?s heart for justice.

It would just have a bigger grasp of all the issues that matter,

and a greater desire to communicate this to other people.

 

Elaine Storkey is a philosopher, sociologist and theologian

and has written books on a wide variety of issues.

She works with Tearfund, Micah Challenge and the Church Army.
