Product Description

Christian leaders, be prepared to interpret and apply Scriptures with facility and confidence! "Getting the Message" is for doers, those who teach biblical truth week by week. Whether you read primarily to remind yourself of familiar principles, or to organize scattered events, or to prepare for a teaching ministry, remember that exegesis is a skill, and we grow in skills by practicing them. This book's chief innovation is that it presents the steps of interpretation in the order in which students of Scripture actually use them. Let this book help you in interpreting and applying the Bible! 255 pages, softcover.

Editorial Reviews

For all those who fear that the Bible is a mysterious labyrinth through which they cannot find their way, Doriani provides wonderful guidance. Written with craft and wit, this highly readable book combines great biblical insight with marvelous practical wisdom. The ‘how to’ guidelines and examples for interpreting Scripture are so clear that even those new to Scripture will say, ‘Hey I can do that too.’ This first rate scholar writes from a pastor’s heart to put a scriptural feast within reach of us all.
A faithful, sane readable, practical guide to effective Bible study. Though based on good scholarship, this book is, in the best sense, a simple guide for the serious Bible student.
The best nontechnical approach I have seen for teaching the skills of biblical interpretation. Based on sound principles, it is balanced, clear, contemporary, realistic, and Christ-centered. The practice exercises set this book apart from virtually everything else available.
An eminently practical book, chock-full of instructive examples. I found it simple, but not simplistic; written in a clear style, but not condescending. . . . Any believer serious about the study of the Bible will profit greatly from a careful reading of this book.
Doriani brings the most recent research in biblical interpretation down to the level of the average Christian in a clear, sensible, and accessible way.

    I rate this book five stars because it's what I've been looking for for ages and eons! Dr. Doriani gives a simple and thorough approach to understanding the Word of God and great skills on how to communicate it. This book is a must for all serious students of God's Word and for those of us who have been given the mantle of Proclaiming it to the world.

    Doriani understands the profound challenge of interpretation and teaches it with profound clarity. "Getting the Message" balances information and application, while using stirring illustrations to keep readers engaged. Cheers to a text that is useful for the young Christian, the small group leader, and the pastor.
