"This book breaks new ground in the study of hermeneutics. Andrew Rogers has done the Church an incredible service by lifting the veil on how congregations interact with the bible and make sense of it in their everyday lives. This careful and original piece of research builds towards constructive and creative suggestions to help the Christian community as it reads the bible. It is a must read for anyone interested in qualitative research and the study of the Church." Pete Ward, Professorial Fellow in Ecclesiology and Ethnography, Durham University, UK
"Andrew Rogers has put us in his debt. His clear and very insightful study of congregational hermeneutics has extended our understanding of how Christian communities actually interpret the Bible in practice. His constructive proposal makes a significant contribution to scholarship in the field. Scholars, students and church leaders interested in practical theology and congregational studies should read this book." Mark J. Cartledge, Professor of Practical Theology, Regent University, Virginia, USA
"The Bible becomes Scripture as it is read by the community of faith. In telling the tale of two congregations, Andrew Rogers helps us look again at the traditions, practices and epistemologies we inhabit. This is an important ethnographic study in the borderlands between practical theology, biblical studies and congregational studies. The seasoned minister will find a real stimulus to reflective practice. The student will find much they wish to emulate." Helen Cameron, Ripon College Cuddesdon, UK
