A MORE CHRISTLIKE WORD: Reading Scripture the Emmaus Way
Bradley Jersak has spent a lifetime immersed in the Scriptures. And now with A More Christlike Word he shares with us his hard-won insights on how to interpret the Scriptures as Christ himself did on the Emmaus Road that first Easter. Of the many recent books on biblical interpretation, I find A More Christlike Word to be the most thorough and comprehensive. It is a gift!

For many of us conflicted between our deep respect for the Bible and legitimate questions which that esteem requires we address, Bradley Jersak has gifted us with this welcome companion, educating the mind, and freeing the heart to harmonize Scripture with the revelation of God we see in Jesus the Messiah.

For those who find the Bible heavy lifting, rather than finding yourselves carried by Jesus, the incarnate Word himself, and his indescribably good gospel of love, then A More Christlike Word is for you. It will invite you to move from simply reading verses through an unexamined lens to always listening for the revelation of Christ, by Christ, who reveals what is true concerning the relentless, renewing love of God, our Father, and thus, what is true about us as his beloved ones.
