About the Author

Glenn R. Paauw is vice president, global Bible engagment, at Biblica and a senior fellow at the Institute for Bible Reading. A native of Colorado, Glenn loves to climb the state?s 14,000-foot peaks and to cycle the back roads of the Front Range.


Glenn Paauw has written a serious and compelling book on the Bible. The tone of his writing is puckish enough to keep us turning pages for more. After identifying our lazy readiness to reduce the Bible to convenient 'scripturettes, ' Paauw guides us to a way to the adult work of serious engagement with the Bible. When the Bible is taken with such seriousness, it will indeed serve to refresh and revive the missional energy of the church. His argument is propelled by the deep conviction that gospel alternatives are on offer for the bold, alert and passionate who engage the biblical text beyond our narcoticized habits of reading.

--Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary

As someone who has participated in creating a Bible translation and a study Bible, I found Paauw's arguments thought-provoking and convicting. . . . This is a great book for anyone who is interested in thinking deeply about our engagement with the Bible and how it could be improved.

--Elliot Ritzema, Bible Study Magazine, November/December 2016

Those looking for a refreshing approach to Bible studies can find enriching insights in Saving the Bible from Ourselves.

--Taylor Berglund, Charisma, July 2016

Well-written, thought-provoking, and bold.

--David Mundt, CBA Retailers + Resources, May, 16, 2016
