Show Notes:26. Russ Ramsey — How Writing Helps You Read Scripture
I have recently been reading Russ’ book, The Mission of the Body of Christ, as a study aid in my preaching of Acts. The book is a part of Russ’ Retailing the Story series, a three-part compilation that narrates the major movements of scripture. Russ’ writing carries a distinct voice and it’s clear his passion for words.
In our conversation, we talk about how a writer’s voice develops and how Russ’ love of art and music has influenced him as a writer. It leads to a conversation about the role of narrative in biblical interpretation and how our own writing can help us develop an appreciation for the Biblical authors’.
Russ offers wise advice on balancing the roles of writing and pastoral ministry. You’ll find plenty to consider and much to apply.
