From the series It Is Written as part of the Year Of Biblical Literacy.This week we tackle the question, what is the Bible for? What is this library of writings supposed to do in our life and community? We make the case that Scripture was designed to be read for formation, not just information. We are all being formed in a certain kind of person by our habits, our community, and our environment; Scripture is counter-formation. We read the Bible to consciously cooperate with God in shaping us into the image of Jesus.
