From ‘The Emerging Christian Way’ (ed. Schwartzentruber), quoting Peter Pitzele…
Today and tomorrow
the Bible will need teachers who are
passionate as well as literate,
savvy as well as scholarly,
street-wise as well as bookwise,
and who can, without degrading it,
make the Bible come alive
as living myth, relevant, disturbing,
and still capable of taking our breath away.
This makes my heart beat faster! Who else wants to come for the ride on this amazing calling to teach the Bible?!
