What kind of Bible did the Holy Spirit inspire? Modernity has misframed the role of the Spirit with the Scriptures, giving us a Holy Reference Book. The Scriptures are actually God’s speech act—a collection of writings, telling a story, inviting us into a live drama. What are we to do with such a Bible? Biblical faithfulness means accepting God’s offer and initiating a Spirit-empowered improvisation of the story in our own time and place.
