Publisher's Description

History, law, poetry, prophecy, apocalypse, letters (epistles), and all of it written thousands of years ago - the Bible is a complex book that can be difficult to navigate. One of the hardest things for a reader is to figure out how to read  different sections of Scripture the way they're supposed to be read and then to figure out how they all fit together. Pastor Jim Nicodem has written a wonderful, accessible resource to help with these challenges.

 

Skeptics often complain that the Bible can be used to prove just about anything. The skeptics are right-if the basic ground rules for understanding the Bible are ignored. Just as with any great piece of literature (e.g. Shakespeare's plays, Tolstoy's novels, Frost's poems), the Bible must be interpreted according to certain guidelines, which scholars refer to as hermeneutics. Context  is a mini-course in hermeneutics, but an accesible one. Discover how to accurately interpret a Bible passage by unpacking its: historical setting, literary genre, and key theological issues. Learn how to use a few simple study tools.

 

Perfect for everyone from first time Bible readers to Bible study leaders, Context is a wonderful tool to help with basic Bible reading or more in-depth study.

Author Bio

JIM NICODEM has been the senior pastor of Christ Community Church since its start in 1984. Beginning with a group of six families, the church has grown to over five thousand people at four campuses. A significant focus on reaching spiritual seekers has resulted in scores of new believers being baptized each year.Born and raised in the Midwest, Jim did his schooling in Biblical studies (BA/Wheaton College; MDiv, DMin/Trinity Evangelical Divinity School). In keeping with Christ Community Church's mission to make passionate disciples of Jesus Christ, Jim loves to mentor others in prayer and the study of God's Word. With that goal in mind, he has authored Prayer Coach: For All Who Want to Get Off the Bench and Onto the Praying Field (2008) and the four-book Bible Savvy series (2013).Jim and his wife, Sue, have been married for more than thirty years and have three grown children. Jim enjoys biking, hiking and kayaking for recreation. He loves to hang out in Chicago, where he can watch the Cubs play (no better park than Wrigley) or listen to the world-class Symphony Orchestra. The local Starbucks also sees a lot of Jim, accompanied by books (mostly biographies) or friends.
