Reading is Changing . . . 

As it has for millennia, the nature of reading—a movement of mind, body, and spirit—continues to change in our contemporary world. Reading for Faith and Learning brings together twenty leading, contemporary voices to discuss the significance of reading as a religious and scholarly practice.

Churches and universities would die without reading, so the rapid changes that are affecting the quality and quantity of reading, books, and libraries is a source of concern or perhaps crisis in both Christianity and theological education.  

Readers of this groundbreaking volume will gain deeper appreciation for what it is to “read Scripture” and will gain historical insights that help us to read better (and to think, write, teach, and preach better) and to discern how to respond to the disruption of printed media in our digital culture.  

From depictions of reading in the Hebrew Bible thousands of years ago to machine-reading of thousands of theological books in online libraries, the twenty contributors to this volume explore different facets of reading and its enduring and evolving importance for understanding and relating to God and our world.
