McAfee BrownJust ran across this great quote in an old book. “Unexpected News: Reading the Bible with Third World Eyes” by Robert McAfee Brown. I’ll let you guess what it says about my politics, but doubtless we will disagree on the power found in God’s Word. Give it a try! It might just change your life (and maybe even your politics). Unexpected News is a great read for anyone wanting to develop their contextual rereading skills among God’s people.

“Me don’ understand politics, me don’ understand big words like ‘democratic socialism.’ What me say is what de Bible say, but because people don’ read de Bible no more, dey tink me talk politics. Ha! It’s de Bible what have it written and it strong, it powerful!”   (Bob Marley)
