The journey through “Subversive Words” makes my heart sing! David Jordan has a gift for words and playfulness in biblical interpretation that I envy and you will enjoy – and a gift for asking what these passages mean for living our lives with integrity and a little humor.
– Glen Stassen, Author, Living the Sermon on the Mount, Smedes professor of Christian Ethics, Fuller Theological Seminary
David Jordan engages readers with fresh, hopeful, witty interpretations. He challenges us to ask questions, to expand beyond traditional understandings. I highly recommend to all who seek a deeper experience of biblical Wisdom.
– Jann Aldredge Clanton, Ph.D., Baptist Minister, Author, In Whose Image? God and Gender
This book is scholarly and accessible, open and rewarding. Calling on a wealth of scholarship, personal stories, and pastoral insight, David has a remarkable ability to make the ancient tests relevant to our modern lives.
– Rev. LeDayne McLeese Polaski, Program Coordinator, Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America
In this fine study, David Jordan contrasts “conventional wisdom”with “biblical wisdom” through an insightful survey of both Testaments. Readers are asked to explore the implications of the “Gospel subversion”for their own lives and their response to contemporary culture. A worthy, hopeful volume.
