Exegeting the Word and the World

Pat Loughery over at In the Coracle has written a helpful post on exegeting communities. Normally, those of us in ministry think of exegesis in regards to analysis and interpretation of biblical texts. But a growing number of urban ministers are finding that to do effective ministry, it is just as important to engage in careful analysis and interpretation of the community one serves. Pat's post, which is based on material he is studying at Bakke Graduate University, offers some helpful tips for getting started with this type of exegesis. For a more thorough look at this subject, I would recommend Ray Bakke's book The Urban Christian.
