"I have long found it stimulating to encounter scripture

not so much as a collection of printed words bound together in a volume,

but to imagine it in Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, Latin or English

as a soundscape of poems prophecies, stories and exhortations,

laughed over and cried over down the centuries.

It is brought to life when it is

read out loud, proclaimed, signed, talked about, discussed,

listened to, communicated, translated.

If we think of Scripture solely as printed words bound in a book,

we have tried to capture and flatten it."
