Bonhoeffer on Scripture

By: Gabriela Yareliz

I loved Bonhoeffer’s thoughts on Scripture:

“One cannot simply read the Bible, like other books. One must be prepared really to enquire of it. Only thus will it reveal itself. Only if we expect from it the ultimate answer, shall we receive it.”

“Do not try to make the Bible relevant. Its relevance is axiomatic… Do not defend God’s Word, but testify to it… Trust to the Word.”
