Who Stole My Bible?: Reclaiming Scripture as a Handbook for Resisting Tyranny

Who Stole My Bible?: Reclaiming Scripture as a Handbook for Resisting Tyranny - Jennifer Butler

Who Stole My Bible?: Reclaiming Scripture as a Handbook for Resisting Tyranny


Have you found yourself asking this question? If you have found yourself looking at those who claim a faith in God and wonder what Bible they are reading, you are not alone.


You might be among the Christians struggling to understand how many of your neighbors profess similar beliefs and ideologies, yet the way they are exercised in how they treat others, how they speak and act, and even how they vote seems so different.


Maybe you don't follow Judeo-Christian teachings but you are familiar with them, and have noticed there is a lack of alignment in what the profess and what they practice.


"Butler's writing is personal, imaginative, accessible, and compelling. I found it to be an empowering page-turner." -Walter Bruegemann

The Bible has been hijacked. We've all seen examples of sacred scripture being used and abused to justify racism, sexism, reactionary politics, and even violence. If you have ever found yourself wondering what Bible some of your fellow believers are reading, if you've ever asked yourself "Who Stole My Bible?", then you are not alone. With a foreword from Brian McLaren, Who Stole My Bible?: Reclaiming Scripture as a Handbook for Resisting Tyranny shows how the Bible from Genesis to Revelation is an inspiring handbook for resisting tyranny.

Jennifer Butler loved the Bible and her Christian faith, but then was disillusioned when it was used against her as a woman. Instead of leaving religion, she found a fresh approach to faith as liberation, and would go on to become an ordained minister and founder of Faith in Public Life, an advocacy organization.

Scripture is replete with stories of those who followed God's call to resist oppression and fearlessly pursue compassion, justice, and human dignity. Chapters focus on the liberating God of the Hebrews, the authoritarianism of King Solomon, the dream team of women in the Bible, and how Jesus came to bring truth and expose the lies of rulers. Each chapter illustrates the lessons of scripture with true stories of courageous religious communities countering authoritarianism and white supremacy in America today. This book will help you connect with generations of prophets and leaders who followed God's call and prevailed against power to establish justice and community.

If you have been burned and disregarded by the church, this book is for you. If you are on the verge of leaving church because of the bigotry you see among Christians, this book is for you. Jennifer Butler once again rediscovered her Christian spirituality in this work, and if you want to deeply connect your faith with your commitment to a more just and compassionate world, this book is for you.

With a foreword from Brian McLaren, Who Stole My Bible?: Reclaiming Scripture as a Handbook for Resisting Tyranny shows how the Bible from Genesis to Revelation is an inspiring handbook for resisting tyranny.

Jennifer Butler loved the Bible and her Christian faith, but then was disillusioned when it was used against her as a woman. Instead of leaving religion, she found a fresh approach to faith as liberation, and would go on to become an ordained minister and founder of Faith in Public Life, an advocacy organization.

Scripture is replete with stories of those who followed God's call to resist oppression and fearlessly pursue compassion, justice, and human dignity. Chapters focus on the liberating God of the Hebrews, the authoritarianism of King Solomon, the dream team of women in the Bible, and how Jesus came to bring truth and expose the lies of rulers. Each chapter illustrates the lessons of scripture with true stories of courageous religious communities countering authoritarianism and white supremacy in America today. This book will help you connect with generations of prophets and leaders who followed God's call and prevailed against power to establish justice and community.

If you have been burned and disregarded by the church, this book is for you. If you are on the verge of leaving church because of the bigotry you see among Christians, this book is for you. Jennifer Butler once again rediscovered her Christian spirituality in this work, and if you want to deeply connect your faith with your commitment to a more just and compassionate world, this book is for you.


"Butler's writing is personal, imaginative, accessible, and compelling. I found it to be an empowering page-turner." -Walter Bruegemann

The Bible has been hijacked. We've all seen examples of sacred scripture being used and abused to justify racism, sexism, reactionary politics, and even violence. If you have ever found yourself wondering what Bible some of your fellow believers are reading, if you've ever asked yourself "Who Stole My Bible?", then you are not alone. With a foreword from Brian McLaren, Who Stole My Bible?: Reclaiming Scripture as a Handbook for Resisting Tyranny shows how the Bible from Genesis to Revelation is an inspiring handbook for resisting tyranny.

Jennifer Butler loved the Bible and her Christian faith, but then was disillusioned when it was used against her as a woman. Instead of leaving religion, she found a fresh approach to faith as liberation, and would go on to become an ordained minister and founder of Faith in Public Life, an advocacy organization.

Scripture is replete with stories of those who followed God's call to resist oppression and fearlessly pursue compassion, justice, and human dignity. Chapters focus on the liberating God of the Hebrews, the authoritarianism of King Solomon, the dream team of women in the Bible, and how Jesus came to bring truth and expose the lies of rulers. Each chapter illustrates the lessons of scripture with true stories of courageous religious communities countering authoritarianism and white supremacy in America today. This book will help you connect with generations of prophets and leaders who followed God's call and prevailed against power to establish justice and community.

If you have been burned and disregarded by the church, this book is for you. If you are on the verge of leaving church because of the bigotry you see among Christians, this book is for you. Jennifer Butler once again rediscovered her Christian spirituality in this work, and if you want to deeply connect your faith with your commitment to a more just and compassionate world, this book is for you.

"Butler's writing is personal, imaginative, accessible, and compelling. I found it to be an empowering page-turner." -Walter Bruegemann

The Bible has been hijacked. We've all seen examples of sacred scripture being used and abused to justify racism, sexism, reactionary politics, and even violence. If you have ever found yourself wondering what Bible some of your fellow believers are reading, if you've ever asked yourself "Who Stole My Bible?", then you are not alone. With a foreword from Brian McLaren, Who Stole My Bible?: Reclaiming Scripture as a Handbook for Resisting Tyranny shows how the Bible from Genesis to Revelation is an inspiring handbook for resisting tyranny.

Jennifer Butler loved the Bible and her Christian faith, but then was disillusioned when it was used against her as a woman. Instead of leaving religion, she found a fresh approach to faith as liberation, and would go on to become an ordained minister and founder of Faith in Public Life, an advocacy organization.

Scripture is replete with stories of those who followed God's call to resist oppression and fearlessly pursue compassion, justice, and human dignity. Chapters focus on the liberating God of the Hebrews, the authoritarianism of King Solomon, the dream team of women in the Bible, and how Jesus came to bring truth and expose the lies of rulers. Each chapter illustrates the lessons of scripture with true stories of courageous religious communities countering authoritarianism and white supremacy in America today. This book will help you connect with generations of prophets and leaders who followed God's call and prevailed against power to establish justice and community.

"Butler's writing is personal, imaginative, accessible, and compelling. I found it to be an empowering page-turner." -Walter Bruegemann

The Bible has been hijacked. We've all seen examples of sacred scripture being used and abused to justify racism, sexism, reactionary politics, and even violence. If you have ever found yourself wondering what Bible some of your fellow believers are reading, if you've ever asked yourself "Who Stole My Bible?", then you are not alone. With a foreword from Brian McLaren, Who Stole My Bible?: Reclaiming Scripture as a Handbook for Resisting Tyranny shows how the Bible from Genesis to Revelation is an inspiring handbook for resisting tyranny.

Jennifer Butler loved the Bible and her Christian faith, but then was disillusioned when it was used against her as a woman. Instead of leaving religion, she found a fresh approach to faith as liberation, and would go on to become an ordained minister and founder of Faith in Public Life, an advocacy organization.

Scripture is replete with stories of those who followed God's call to resist oppression and fearlessly pursue compassion, justice, and human dignity.

Descrierea produsului


Have you found yourself asking this question? If you have found yourself looking at those who claim a faith in God and wonder what Bible they are reading, you are not alone.


You might be among the Christians struggling to understand how many of your neighbors profess similar beliefs and ideologies, yet the way they are exercised in how they treat others, how they speak and act, and even how they vote seems so different.


Maybe you don't follow Judeo-Christian teachings but you are familiar with them, and have noticed there is a lack of alignment in what the profess and what they practice.

With a foreword from Brian McLaren, Who Stole My Bible?: Reclaiming Scripture as a Handbook for Resisting Tyranny shows how the Bible from Genesis to Revelation is an inspiring handbook for resisting tyranny.

Jennifer Butler loved the Bible and her Christian faith, but then was disillusioned when it was used against her as a woman. Instead of leaving religion, she found a fresh approach to faith as liberation, and would go on to become an ordained minister and founder of Faith in Public Life, an advocacy organization.

Scripture is replete with stories of those who followed God's call to resist oppression and fearlessly pursue compassion, justice, and human dignity. Chapters focus on the liberating God of the Hebrews, the authoritarianism of King Solomon, the dream team of women in the Bible, and how Jesus came to bring truth and expose the lies of rulers. Each chapter illustrates the lessons of scripture with true stories of courageous religious communities countering authoritarianism and white supremacy in America today. This book will help you connect with generations of prophets and leaders who followed God's call and prevailed against power to establish justice and community.

If you have been burned and disregarded by the church, this book is for you. If you are on the verge of leaving church because of the bigotry you see among Christians, this book is for you. Jennifer Butler once again rediscovered her Christian spirituality in this work, and if you want to deeply connect your faith with your commitment to a more just and compassionate world, this book is for you.


"Butler's writing is personal, imaginative, accessible, and compelling. I found it to be an empowering page-turner." -Walter Bruegemann

The Bible has been hijacked. We've all seen examples of sacred scripture being used and abused to justify racism, sexism, reactionary politics, and even violence. If you have ever found yourself wondering what Bible some of your fellow believers are reading, if you've ever asked yourself "Who Stole My Bible?", then you are not alone. With a foreword from Brian McLaren, Who Stole My Bible?: Reclaiming Scripture as a Handbook for Resisting Tyranny shows how the Bible from Genesis to Revelation is an inspiring handbook for resisting tyranny.

Jennifer Butler loved the Bible and her Christian faith, but then was disillusioned when it was used against her as a woman. Instead of leaving religion, she found a fresh approach to faith as liberation, and would go on to become an ordained minister and founder of Faith in Public Life, an advocacy organization.

Scripture is replete with stories of those who followed God's call to resist oppression and fearlessly pursue compassion, justice, and human dignity. Chapters focus on the liberating God of the Hebrews, the authoritarianism of King Solomon, the dream team of women in the Bible, and how Jesus came to bring truth and expose the lies of rulers. Each chapter illustrates the lessons of scripture with true stories of courageous religious communities countering authoritarianism and white supremacy in America today. This book will help you connect with generations of prophets and leaders who followed God's call and prevailed against power to establish justice and community.

If you have been burned and disregarded by the church, this book is for you. If you are on the verge of leaving church because of the bigotry you see among Christians, this book is for you. Jennifer Butler once again rediscovered her Christian spirituality in this work, and if you want to deeply connect your faith with your commitment to a more just and compassionate world, this book is for you.
