Outside Books - Minor 156


Highlighting 10 birds throughout Scripture in Consider the Birds: A Provocative Guide to Birds of the Bible, author Debbie Blue explores their significance in both familiar and unfamiliar biblical stories, and illustrates how and why birds have represented humanity across culture, Christian tradition, art, and contemporary psyche. With these (usually) minor characters at the forefront, poignant life lessons such as desire and gratitude, power and vulnerability, insignificance and importance are explored. Consider the Birds provides us with profound lessons about humanity, faith, and God's mysterious grace.

Debbie Blue is one of the founding pastors of House of Mercy, a church in St. Paul, Minnesota, that was once named the Best Church for Non-Church Goers. The church is regularly featured on Minnesota Public Radio and is known nation-wide as one of the first and most enduring emergent congregations. Rev. Blue's sermon podcasts are listened to by subscribers around the world, and her essays, sermons, and reflections on scripture have appeared in a wide variety of publications including Life in Body, Proclaiming the Scandal of the Cross, Geez, The Image Journal, and The Christian Century, where she also frequents as a guest blogger.
