"The Role of the Bible in the Contemporary Church" (Review)

Few Anglicans in Brisbane have any depth of knowledge of the Bible; few read or study the Bible regularly; and few have any sense of encountering the reality of God in and through scripture. Consequently, few Anglicans speak passionately about their experience of God or feel comfortable speaking about their faith with others.
So says the Archbishop of Brisbane, and those who are not tired of the subject will find an erudite analysis of some of the reasons why this is so here in Mark Thompson's review of "The Once and Future Scriptures: Exploring the Role of the Bible in the Contemporary Church".

As one, however, who has grown very tired of the level of discussion about the subject on this blog, I am keeping comments here closed.
