Podcast: Miranda Threlfall-Holmes on How to Eat Bread: 21 nourishing ways to read the Bible

17 June 2021

0:00 / 0:00

This week, Ed Thornton talks to the Revd Dr Miranda Threlfall-Holmes about her new book How to Eat Bread: 21 nourishing ways to read the Bible (Hodder & Stoughton). It’s available to buy from the Church Times Bookshop for the reduced price of £10.99.

“I found that over the years, I’ve continually had people coming up to me quietly asking how they should read the Bible,” she says. “There are quite a lot of books at a fairly academic level, but really very little that bridges the gap between Bible-reading notes and academic books on theological hermeneutics. . .

“I’m trying to bridge that gap with this book, to have something that you can give to anyone, whether they’re a new Christian or an experienced Christian, that helps them think about the Bible.”

An extract from the book is published in this week’s Church Times (18 June), and it is reviewed by Canon Anthony Philips in our books pages.

The Revd Dr Miranda Threlfall-Holmes is Team Rector of St Luke in the City, Liverpool.
