 Brandon O'Brien Biography

I have my hands on several plows at the moment. One hand is on Christian publishing,in which industry I work as a freelance writer and editor and am editor at large for Leadership journal. My articles, book reviews, and interviews have appeared in Leadership, Christianity Today, Relevant, and the Out of Ur blog.

The other hand is on academics. I am a part-time faculty member in the religious studies department at College of DuPage. I earned a B.A. in English literature and Biblical studies at Ouachita Baptist University and an M.A. in Religion in American Life from Wheaton College Graduate School. I am now a doctoral candidate in historical theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

My favorite role is as husband to the beautiful and talented Amy OBrien and father of James David.

I have served, too, in full time ministry. Now I keep busy as a ministry spouse, deacon, sometime instrumentalist, and basic church utility player. My main passion in writing is to bring these several spheresChristian publishing, academics, ministry, and personal formationinto fruitful conversation.

Where we are when we read the Bible matters. Our cultural location and assumptions influence how we interpret Scripturedetermine what we consider most important, what we emphasize, and what we ignore. Because of this, sometimes what we consider the plain meaning of the text is really a misinterpretation.

Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes suggests that there is a discernible pattern by which we western readers read (and misread) Scripture. Specifically, the book identifies and discusses nine habits western readers (ourselves included) have that can cause us to misunderstand what the Bible is really saying. These habits are deep assumptionsassumptions that go without being said. We hope the book will help readers become aware of how our cultural assumptions affect the way we read our Bibles and offer constructive direction in correcting potential misreadings. Ultimately, our goal is to give people greater confidence in their approach to Scripture.
