Product Description

Understanding the Bible correctly and rightly relating its meaning to life requires using the right approach and tools to dig deeper into Scripture. In Grasping God's Word: A Hands on Approach to Reading, Interpreting, and Applying the Bible, Old Testament scholar J. Daniel Hays and New Testament expert J. Scott Duvall provide practical, hands-on exercises to guide students and lay-learners through the interpretive process. Now in its third edition, this textbook has proven itself in classrooms across the country as an invaluable help to students who want to learn how to read, interpret, and apply the Bible for themselves.

This revised and updated third edition of Grasping God's Word: A Hands on Approach to Reading, Interpreting, and Applying the Bible is more equipped than ever to meet the demands of the classroom and students seeking knowledge about the Bible and proper ways of understanding it.

To emphasize the Bible's redemptive arc and encourage correlation across the canon, the authors have included a call to 'cross into the rest of Scripture' as an additional step in the Interpretive Journey. The new edition has also been rearranged for clarity and includes updated illustrations, appendices, bibliography, and assignments. A website for professors offers extensive teaching materials, and an accompanying revised workbook (Grasping God's Word Workbook—sold separately) gives students additional practice in reading and interpreting the Bible.

This textbook may be used alongside the following sold separately resources
