Product Description

Just as a hiker learns to interpret the contours and symbols on a map, we must understand the road signs in Scripture in order to head in the right direction. An abridgment of Grasping God's Word, this reliable guide features hands-on exercises to help you read, interpret, and apply biblical passages with thoughtfulness and integrity.

The opening chapter describes the process of reading and applying the Bible, a process that is described as an interpretative journey. Next, the skills and insights necessary for reading Scripture accurately and responsibly is addressed. Finally, it is discussed how to read and apply specific sections of both Old and New Testaments. Each chapter closes with discussion questions and hands-on assignments that allow you to apply what you have learned.

J. Scott Duvall is professor of New Testament Ouachita Baptist University. And J. Daniel Hays is dean of Pruet School of Christian Studies and professor of Old Testament and Biblical interpretation at Ouachita Baptist University.

Publisher's Description

Life is a journey, and like any journey, it requires an accurate, reliable roadmap to get us where we need to go. God has provided such a guide in his Word. But just as a navigator needs to learn how to interpret all the contours and symbols of a map, so also we need to be able to understand how the Bible communicates its directions to us. Journey Into God’s Word helps Bible readers acquire these skills and become better at reading, interpreting, and applying the Bible to life. This abridgment of the bestselling college/seminary textbook Grasping God’s Word takes the proven principles from that book and makes them accessible to people in the church. It starts with general principles of interpretation, then moves on to apply those principles to specific genres and contexts. Hands-on exercises guide readers through the interpretation process, with an emphasis on real-life application.

    I have used this text in my Hermeneutics class that I am teaching. It was the required reading for the summer and it worked very well in a church context. I also read the larger college version of the text Grasping God's Word so between them I got a fully orbed view of the topic.
