Why Can't I Just Be a Christian?" 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 has emerged at the perfect time to cool the flames of a world on fire with contention and controversy. It calls Christians to a way to read the Bible that leads beyond old debates and denominational battles. It calls Christians to stop taming the Bible and to let it speak anew for a new generation. In his books The Jesus Creed and Embracing Grace, Scot McKnight established himself as one of America's finest Christian thinkers, an author to be reckoned with. In The Blue Parakeet, McKnight again touches the hearts and minds of today's Christians, this time challenging them to rethink how to read the Bible, not just to puzzle it together into some systematic theology but to see it as a Story that we're summoned to enter and to carry forward in our day. In his own inimitable style, McKnight sets traditional and liberal Christianity on its ear, leaving readers equipped, encouraged, and emboldened to be the people of faith they long to be.… (mere)

This was chosen as a title to be taught at a Christian based leadership college. I was asked to create a syllabus for classroom discussion -- but I couldn't do it -- I kept trying to read it but after the third try I gave it up.

NOTE: The instructor said this one was much better than the one they were previous using (title unknown). This is one book that I'm not keeping.

One of the main beliefs of most churches is that we can read the Bible and understand it ourselves. However, reading the Bible is not always easy. How do best read the Bible? This is a great book to start sharpening your skills in reading the Bible.
As a birdwatcher, McKnight once found that a blue parakeet had joined the other birds in his backyard. Although the other birds were originally uncomfortable with this stranger, they soon adjusted. As McKnight says, “They let the blue parakeet be a blue parakeet.” He uses this as an analogy – the Bible has “Blue parakeet” passages that make us uncomfortable or leave us scratching our heads. How do we let these “be blue parakeets”? To explain this, McKnight (who is a professor of New Testament) explains that She believes we should read the Bible as story. When we read this way, we can see how the parts we don’t understand fir into the bigger picture.
Reading the Bible is not always easy, and if we are going to be faithful and really grow in our relationship with God, we need to explore and understand how to read the Bible. You will have a better grasp on understanding what God wants for you once you finish (and start applying) this book.

This book is relatively easy to read and would be a great book to discuss in a group. Note: While generally a book on how to read the Bible, the major example used – women in ministry – can be controversial. If you are not comfortable with being challenged on this issue you will probably want to skip this book ( )

Essential reading for any student of the Bible. How to read and understand the Bible. The author is a seminary professor and writes very well with compelling approaches to the hard stuff in the bible. Especially important with anyone who wants a way of making sense out of what Paul said about women in the church and it's contradiction with that women actually did both in the old and new testaments.

A blue parakeet is an unexpected or uncomfortable part of the Bible
The author stresses the need to read the Bible as a story as God's words to us. We need to discern the overall message and let it guide us in living as God wants us to. ( )

I'm a pastor on the lookout for books to recommend to parishioners on reading the Bible. This one, while far better than Reading the Bible for All It's Worth, is not the book I'm looking for. At best, Blue Parakeet might have eaten the book I'm looking for, and added to it acronyms (WDWD? = What Did Women Do?); clunky slang (the book's title; Biblical stories as "wiki-stories of the Story) that already feels dated (at only 8 years old); and a long case-study section on women in ministry which is basically a different book. Also, McKnight's exegetical methods never allow him to even discuss the question of Pauline authorship (even in 1 Timothy) or how McKnight's take on reading "with Tradition" could lend itself to an LGBT-inclusive church. I don't know if that was to not lose part of the intended evangelical audience, but that's my best guess. ( )
