For many reasons, some of them innocent or ignorant, Christians have taken Bible verses out of context and changed their meaning. Often times, this leads to us thinking the Bible is all about us. In Misquoted, Dan Suelzle aims to show that this isn’t the case. Instead, the Bible is actually about Jesus for us.
Addressing widespread beliefs, such as not judging others and how Christians should expect to be rich, Suelzle tells what each belief entails and what verses are used to support it, then explains where it errs and the proper context for the verses.
The book is thought-provoking, and each topic is covered thoroughly. I cannot say I immediately agree with every single thing that’s written in it, but I do need to take a closer look at things I’ve heard and hold onto. There were several topics that I knew were wrong, but Misquoted gave me ways to support my position instead of just saying the belief is wrong.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
