On Reading The Bible Well – Snippet from CRC Banner

I thought this was astute and helpful advice on reading the Bible well:

“We tend to hear things differently when we read with others, and a brother or sister can alert you to something in the text that you missed. Better still, if you really want to make sure you aren’t just interpreting in such a way that you reaffirm everything you already believe, read the Bible with people who are different than you. Find people older or younger, richer or poorer, more urban or country than you. Find people of a different ethnicity or from a different political party or a different denomination and read the Scriptures with them!”
