Comments Reading the Bible with the Damned

  • Nancy

    This book sat on my shelf for a long time before I got into it -- and then it gripped me. It was not what I expected. Ekblad is a guy with a PhD who spends his time visiting illegal Mexican immigrants in Skagit County jail and introducing them to God's love through Bible studies. The book is his journal of those encounters, allowing us to experience how he cuts through the baggage of church ritual, Christianese, and traditional interpretations to mine the essential meaning from basic Bible stori [...]


  • David Meldrum

    A brilliant, illuminating and challenging book which documents the author's experience of reading the Bible with people on the margins of society. We're taken through a variety of different Biblical genres and see how orthodox theology is transfigured and enriched by allowing the dispossessed and alienated to interact with the text on their own terms. Important reading for anyone who claims to be taking the Bible seriously, this will be especially valuable for those whose task it is to open Scri [...]


  • Darcy

    Attention all seminary and Bible school students. If you read one more book on hermeneutics after taking courses on it, make it Ekblad's. Though a little rough around the edges (he does, after all, quote verbatim some conversations he had with inmates while studying the Bible with them), this work is a MUST read for anyone hoping to properly handle the Word of Truth here in North America. Fantastic read--among my all time favourites.


  • Joyce del Rosario

    Bob Ekblad offers an organic way to approach the Bible with migrant workers, prisoners and other people on the margins. The book is largely what he has uncovered in the scriptures along with the people he serves in ministry. New discoveries and theologies are formed as the Word becomes “liberation for the not yet knowing.” (Ekbald 2005. 9)The book is full of anecdotal stories of his bible studies with people. Upon closer inspection, his approach to bible studies is his practical approach to [...]


  • Brent

    This book basically the authors record of a bunch of bible studies he did with poor south American laborers and jail inmates in the states. He approaches the bible studies as opportunities to practice liberation theology. He basically argues that everyone who reads the bible interprets it for themselves to some degree, and that most standard interpretations and come from a well-educated, privileged minority. In the author's bible studies he leads and encourages alternative interpretation of scri [...]


  • David

    I loved this book because the author confirmed something that I have been coming to believe for some time now. The Bible is often misused by the powerful and affluent - those on the top side of a society, and yes, even among the religious. The truth is that most of the content of Scriptures is to remind "the damned" that God is with them and that things are not always as they seem.If you are like me, a suburban American Christian whose life has been mostly blessed, this book will be a challenge. [...]


  • Jason

    Great book. I would almost say a must-read for those leading Bible studies. An Eckblad quote:"In my preaching and teaching I envision my role as that of a facilitator and midwife…. As midwife I assist during the birthing process recognizing that the work is done by the Spirit in intimate communion with people in the depths of their beings. I seek to be present as appropriately as possible—getting out of the way or intervening when necessary. I set up the birthing room as it were, making sure [...]


  • Meghan

    I gave this book four stars only because the writing style is sometimes pedestrian. But I'm beginning to re-think that position. This book is the clearest, most compelling, most surprising window into the God of the Bible that I've ever encountered, and also a picture of faith and justice that is winsome and rare--on either side of the liberal/conservative theological/political divide. Reading it, we see Jesus, and it is good.


  • Nick

    Bob Ekblad has for years been offering Bible study and prayer at a local jail--this is an account of some of what he experiences and a lot of what he has learned from the most marginalized people around. A life-changer.


  • Pixismiler

    It's a little hard to read, but the basic message is that you can be the biggest sinner in the world and God can call you for greatness. I loved the parts where he was meeting with the inmates.


  • Richard

    I bet this is Jesus' favorite book next to the Torah.


  • Todd Putney

    Ekblad has spent his life his life reading the Bible with inmates, illegals, and undocumented persons in Washington. Very powerful book.


  • Deb Amend

    I really thought this was a great book. Very insightful. I didn't agree with all his ideas, especially in areas of honesty, but his perspective was interesting, inspiring and convicting.
