The Sound of Scripture

Reading the Bible Aloud

Barbara Laughlin Adler

A brief guide for lay readers

This book is designed as a guide for readers who want to become more confident and effective in communicating the meaning of God's Word clearly to listeners.

Reading scripture aloud involves a great many considerations by the reader: knowledge and understanding, faith, respect, “spirit and heart,” vocal skill, and physical control. Though reading individual words on the printed page might seem an easy task, communicating the profound meaning of the words clearly can be an exciting challenge.

Lay readers and lectors are here given a simple process to follow when preparing their readings so they feel comfortable reading with variety, expressiveness, and, most of all, with clear understanding.

Barbara Laughlin Adler is professor emerita of Communication Studies at Concordia University-Ann Arbor, where she taught public speaking, oral reading of scripture, rhetoric and literature for 34 years. She earned her Ph.D. at Wayne State University, Detroit and her Lutheran Teaching Diploma from Concordia. She currently conducts lay reader workshops, and serves as archivist for the Michigan District-LCMS

This volume comes from an experienced and respected lay professional who is familiar with the principles of public speaking but who also clearly understands the purpose of Christian worship. Dr. Adler offers a sensitive and fresh approach which should certainly be extremely helpful for pastors, vicars, lay readers, Sunday school teachers, or any who are called upon to read the Bible in public.
Howard W. Kramer, President Emeritus, Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary St. Catharines, Ontario
