What is the Book of Faith Initiative?
The ELCA’s Book of Faith initiative invites you to open
your Bible and join the conversation about Scripture and life. It aims
to deepen our fluency in the first language of faith. It highlights the
Lutheran understanding of the written Word in the context of the living
Word and the spoken Word. It affirms a variety of ways to explore and
appreciate Scripture and the language of faith.
The Book of Faith initiative will carry though the next
four years. Through our participation in this renewal movement, St.
Paul Church hopes to develop a richer and healthier appreciation for
Scripture as part of daily life.
Unlike other programs, Book of Faith does not rest on a specific course or resource. Rather, it aims simply to make folks feel more at home with and comfortable using the Bible and its language that expresses our faith. There are many ways to do this.
