This book asks How should Christians embody Scripture Moral rules, the authors say, are contextualized within the friendships and practices of particular communities These rules are likely relatively stable and authoritative, though in principle open to revision p 10 Since there is no way to talk about moral decisions apart from people s contexts, convictions, and commitments, it s important not

friendships and practices of particular communities These rules are likely relatively stable and authoritative, though in principle open to revision p 10 Since there is no way to talk about moral decisions apart from people s contexts, convictions, and commitments, it s important not to overly focus on decisions made by isolated individuals p 9 In part, the book focuses on how to engage people who are different from ourselves Outsiders may have coherent beliefs different from ours p 124 and we cannot assume that, if they could stand in our shoes, they would agree with us, they would think like us, they would be us p 123 Outsiders are, in fact, different from us we and the outsider are not disguised versions of each other and we may need to engage with them in a way unlike the way in which we engage with our own communities.This is well phrased First, in our judgment of the world we also judge ourselves We discover the ways in which our own lives, as communities and individuals, continue to reflect that world of unbelief rather than the Gospel of Jesus Christ As James Wm McClendon has suggested, the line between church and world passes right through each Christian s heart We need to allow the world to provide readings of us because we can too easily conflate the Church and the Kingdom, presuming that the world is not or at least is not any longer a part of our lives So, for example, when we condemn racism or sexism as incompatible with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we need to allow the world to read us by showing how the practices and institutions of Christian communities continue to be racist and sexist pp 47 48 The authors believe that rules, principles, claims, values and the like depend on human traditions and all humans aren t universally bound to accept the same systems p 11 Scriptural interpretation, too, they say, depends on communal tradition p 21 However, the authors do believe that all people are called to live as disciples of Jesus Christ, and for this reason they assert that they do not maintain a relativism about morality p 11 Personally, I happen not to see what makes discipleship of Jesus stand apart from everything else and how that one detail would turn a relativist moral system into a non relativist one This meta ethics looks relativist to me, and I am happy with that This book clearly put to words and expanded greatly

Scriptural interpretation, embodied within the community in order to build Christian character This work has changed the way I view Biblical study and interpretation I look forward to using this work to form the practices of my church s communal life.The authors contend that the interpretation of Scripture happens best within practicing communities of faith who are seeking to faithfully embody their interpretations in community and in the world Seeing the Bible as Scripture is a very different perspective than seeing the Bible as an ancient text among others and will result in different interpretive questions being brought to the text, namely, how do we live faithfully in this time and in this place Wise readings of Scripture and the world are made possible by the community of faith shaped and formed by the Triune God The task of Biblical interpretation is a two way dialogue between past and present in order that performance of Scripture becomes faithful to the God whom the Scriptures bear witness Any discontinuities between then and now are primarily moral our failure to faithfully embody Christian living and not historical in nature Thus, faithful interpretation is closely linked with Christ like character which, formed through communal practices, allows the community to hear the Word of God over against as the need arises Failure of character can lead to misinterpretation and self serving Biblical justification for practices that work against God s will for His people As part of the development of character and seeking to faithfully embody the interpretation of Scripture the community shaped by the Triune God is open to the views and perspectives of outsiders who may be used by Christ to bring clarity and correction The authors end with a discussion of how Bonhoeffer embodied this approach to Biblical interpretation and raise some intriguing questions about how his life could have turned out differently had he continued to be part of an interpretive community
