Publisher's Description

What should we make of the Bible story about a talking donkey? What about the passage in Joshua where the sun and moon stood still? Should biblical practices like women wearing head coverings still be followed today? The Bible serves as the foundation for all of Christian life, crossing time and transcending cultures, yet many passages are perplexing.

Providing fascinating historical and scriptural insights, Eric J. Bargerhuff demystifies 40 Bible verses and stories. Ranging from strange accounts, such as bears mauling 42 boys (2 Kings 2), to hard-to-accept statements, such as Jesus saying we must hate our families to be his disciples (Luke 14), you will learn the context of each passage and how it applies to us today. This book will help you be more confident about interpreting all of God's Word accurately.
