read the Bible

Tom Wright and the use of the Bible in corporate worship. This is from pg 151 in Simply Christian.
Just as you're insulting a good wine if you drink it from a plastic cup instead of a glass which shows off its color, bouquet, and full flavor, so you're insulting the Bible if, given the opportunity, you don't create a context in which it can be heard and celebrated as what it really is: the rehearsal of the powerful deeds of God the creator and rescuer.
"Give yourself to the public reading of Scripture" [1 Tim 4.13].
