About-

The living Word of God has the power to penetrate and change readers and audiences. As the Holy Spirit illumines understanding and empowers speaking, we can improve our oral reading through approach, attitude and technique. Ethical responsibilities, community experience of reading as worship, and individual reader orientation are all addressed throughout the book.

Focused on understanding the biblical text leading to impacting both the person who reads and the audience, 'Oral Interpretation of the Bible' takes a rhetorical approach to the reading experience. This holistic method addresses hermeneutic practice, process and theory as well as communication procedure, philosophy and technique. Each chapter is followed by exercises to facilitate application of the material increasing the artistic performance of the Bible. The appendixes give helpful worksheets and exercises to sharpen the skills and broaden the applications of the text. A unique scoring system will assist those who use it to analyze, understand and orally interpret any passage with grace and power.
