Outreach magazine selects The Bible Unwrapped as a top theology/biblical studies resource for 2019
HARRISONBURG, Va. — Outreach magazine annually lists some of the best new outreach-oriented books and curricula for church leaders by honoring them as Outreach Resources of the Year.
Out of 170 resources in consideration, The Bible Unwrapped: Making Sense of Scripture Today, by Meghan Larissa Good and published by Herald Press, was chosen, named one of the two top books in the theology/biblical studies category. The other book named to that category was How to Read Theology by Uche Anizor (Baker Academic).
There are 11 categories on the resource list. An expert in each category evaluated the resources and chose what they considered to be the best. The complete list can be found at OutreachMagazine.com in the Resources section.
Outreach magazine offers ideas, insights, and stories of and for today’s outreach-oriented, Bible-based churches. Founded in January 2003 by church communications company Outreach Inc., Outreach is an award-winning, bimonthly periodical and is available by mail subscription and online.
Author and speaker Dottie Escobedo-Frank says of The Bible Unwrapped, “You need this book in your church and in your work with people who are searching for answers. It is the missing piece for our discussions on current topics and the Bible.” And author and pastor Gregory A. Boyd writes in the foreword, “I have read countless books that introduce readers to the Bible. I can honestly say that I have found none as enjoyable to read—without sacrificing anything by way of biblical scholarship—as this one.”
Herald Press publishes books on reconciliation, community, discipleship, mission, spirituality, theology, and Amish and Mennonite life and faith.
