Re-Enchanting the Text: Discovering the Bible as Sacred, Dangerous, and Mysterious Paperback - 2023

by Cheryl Bridges Johns

From the rear cover

"One can only voice a vigorous 'yes' to this wise and welcome book"

In an age when the Bible has been stripped of its sacredness and mystery, and functional biblical illiteracy reigns, this book makes the case that we must work to re-enchant the text in order to return the Bible to its rightful place in the lives of Christians.

"One can only voice a vigorous 'yes' to this wise and welcome book. Johns's work is at once breathtaking and breath-giving in its expansive hopefulness."
--Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary

"In this powerful and compelling analysis, Johns offers a way to 're-enchant' Scripture that refuses domestication; sees the text's power to disrupt, redescribe, and reorient; and embraces a pneumatic imagination. A must-read."
--Lisa Bowens, Princeton Theological Seminary

"This book amounts to a bold Pentecostal intervention in current discussions about the theological interpretation of Scripture. Johns's vision for a Pentecostal ontology of Scripture is not just for Pentecostals--it is a gift to the church catholic, born at Pentecost."
--James K. A. Smith, Calvin University; author of How (Not) to Be Secular, Thinking in Tongues, and You Are What You Love

"This book holds a timely invitation to come on a particular journey, one that asks how it is that sacred Scripture has become something less than a text through which the Spirit manifests and speaks. It also provides us a way forward from this predicament."
--Daniel Castelo, Duke Divinity School

"I have been waiting on this book from Johns since reading Pentecostal Formation. Feast on this volume and open yourself up to God's mystery being unveiled in our daily lives, even in a late modern world."
--Amos Yong, Fuller Theological Seminary

"Johns's vision of and for Scripture calls us into deeper, richer participation in God's revelation and presence. This vision is vital to engage the next generation, whose members long for true spirituality and value authenticity."
--Rev. Jacqueline Grey, Alphacrucis University College, Australia

"Johns has opened through this wide-ranging work an urgent, timely, and evocative discussion."
--Rickie Moore, Lee University
