Publisher's Description

Avoid these common errors in studying God s Word.


Overview


Many of us do not know how to listen to the voice of God in Scripture, because we were trained to view the Bible as a series of verses strung together like pearls on a string, each having its own meaning in itself. We were trained to resort to that treasure trove whenever we felt a need for something from it, plucking the gem that satisfies our quest at the moment, says John H. Stek. How can Christians remain open to God s message while studying Scripture? Do topical studies really glean the truth?
