The Honor-Shame Paraphrase

Readers often misinterpret Scripture for a simple reason—our culture is very different from the ancient cultures of the Bible. For example, Westerners are often “blind” to the social dynamics of honor and shame.

The Honor-Shame Paraphrase helps you understand the Bible according to its original cultural context. This fresh approach addresses the cultural gap of Scripture by highlighting the assumed social nuances of Scripture.  The Honor-Shame Paraphrase unlocks the meaning of Scripture in insightful and accessible ways. This series is ideal for personal devotions, teaching preparation, ministry preparation, Bible studies, and life groups.
