Parakeets make delightful pets. We cage them or clip their wings to keep them where we want them. Scot McKnight contends that many, conservatives and liberals alike, attempt the same thing with the Bible. We all try to tame it. McKnight's The Blue Parakeet calls Christians to stop taming the Bible and to let it speak anew to our heart.
McKnight challenges us to rethink how to read the Bible, not just to puzzle it together into some systematic belief but to see it as a story that we're summoned to enter and to carry forward in our day.

Totally enjoyed listening to this book and will listen to it again. It made me think about many things on a deeper level and challenged some of my traditional Pentecostal leanings. I am inspired to look into some subjects more thoroughly.
It was narrated clearly and at a good speed and chapters were not too long. It is written in simple language yet is not condescending.
I have and will be recommending it to others.
