Anna Carter Florence


Like a play, Scripture is a text that needs to be rehearsed, says Anna Carter Florence. We can study it carefully. We can listen to sermons and read up on experts. But in the end, Scripture is meant to be encountered—and we do this work best when we do it in community.

In this book Florence offers concrete practical tools for reading and encountering Scripture in groups. She shows how rehears­ing the text together enables us to find our script, or place, in Scripture and better apprehend biblical truth for our lives. Her reading strategies are fresh, easy to grasp, and very adaptable to a variety of contexts.

Suitable for new and seasoned Bible readers alike, Florence’s Rehearsing Scripture invites groups and churches to move beyond doctrinal differences as they gather around a shared text and encounter God anew together.

J. De Waal Dryden

Baker Academic


This book develops an integrated hermeneutic that connects the Bible to spiritual formation and the development of Christian virtues. The author shows how the whole Bible can be understood as a wisdom text that directs its readers morally, shapes them in their deepest affections and convictions, and impacts how they look at the world and live in it.

“In an age of many good books on hermeneutics, Dryden’s A Hermeneutic of Wisdom truly stands out. Rarely have I encountered an author who so deeply understands and integrates epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, and biblical studies. With fair critiques of both modernism and postmodernism, Dryden calls Christians to a thoughtful and faithful engagement with Scripture, not as an object but as God’s revealed wisdom aiming at our spiritual formation. Highly recommended!”
Jonathan T. Pennington, Southern Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
