In his interview with John Anderson, Richard Hays, said:
First of all, the NT is best studied in a community of prayer, worship, and service, where it is taken not merely as a museum piece but as a living word that calls us to account.
This is it! And probably, the WHOLE BIBLE is to be studied and lived out in community with one’s fellow believers (not in isolation)! It is the Living Word of God and as Hays, says, it calls us to account. I know it does for me, does it for you?
Head on over and read the whole interview – it’s good good stuff.
