This book not only provides an introduction to the interpretation of the Bible but also to the history and theological understanding behind it, equipping students to think critically about their own tradition's approach to Scripture. It is perfect as a supplemental textbook in both introductory biblical studies and theology courses, but it will also be of interest to adult education classes.
-Roger J. Green,
professor and chair of biblical studies and Christian ministries and Terrelle B. Crum Chair of Humanities, Gordon College
What kind of book is the Bible? Where did it come from? Is it infallible or inspired? Does it contain errors? How do we interpret the Bible to hear its message clearly? Those new to the Bible or readers familiar with it, including inquiring students, will find here practical help in answering these questions and making their own decisions about what to believe about the Bible. Readers will come away from this well-informed, theologically balanced, and easy-to-read book eager to engage Scripture and see that there is more than one way for Christians to be biblical, faithful, and effective followers of Jesus.
-Graham H. Twelftree,
distinguished professor of New Testament, School of Divinity, Regent University
"Remarkably readable, this book informs and provokes thinking in an engaging way. No one holds all the views surveyed in the book, but we can come to a better understanding of the range of views by this appraisal that seeks to give each view a fair hearing.
professor of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary
Don Thorsen and Keith Reeves believe that all Christians should--and can--be informed students of the Bible. They put that belief into action by providing an accessible but substantial guide to what the Bible is, where it came from, and how we can make it part of our lives and thoughts today. This is an informative and useful guidebook to the Christian's Guidebook.
-W. David Buschart,
associate dean and professor of theology and historical studies, Denver Seminary
IreneUnited States4 Stars Out Of 5Filled with helpful and important informationJune 10, 2013IreneUnited StatesQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4The subtitle to the book is A Concise Guide for Students. Although I do see how it could help students I would not call it concise! I gave this book 4/5 stars. There was a lot of information in the book about the Bible and ways to study and interpret what you read. There was also helpful information about why we need to study and learn from it. However, there were just too many words! There were sentences that could have been shortened to maybe ten words instead of twenty! Overall it had helpful information in it but was just too long and wordy for me.
I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

I had the wonderful pleasure of not only working for Azusa Pacific University, but also being able to take all of my Greek classes from one of the authors of this book, Keith H. Reeves is professor of New Testament and early Christian literature in the school of theology at APU. Dr. Reeves is also the author of The Resurrection Narrative in Matthew: A Literary Critical Examination and numerous articles.
Don Thorsen is professor of theology, chair of the department of theology and ethics, and chair of advanced studies in the Haggard Graduate School of Theology at APU. Dr. Thorson's previous books include The Wesleyan Quadrilateral and An Exploration of Christian Theology.
This book covers a lot of what we call "doctrine." Both the authors have done a wonderful job providing a solid text on the Bible's nature and I also think readers will walk away with a better understanding of the Bible's rich history.
The book is broken down into 4 parts, an introduction, how the bible should be interpreted, theology and a conclusion. Part three will be especially interesting to most readers as it gives a solid foundation for the Bible's religious authority, the inspiration behind the Bible, and views on the Bible's infallibly.
As soon as I got this book, my Dad and I skimmed its pages and read things that we found especially interesting. I think this book will serve as a useful textbook in schools, and in helping to answer questions that arise but are not always treated in today's churches.
Thank you to Baker Academic for providing this book and for the opportunity for me to express my opinion.
