Publisher's Description

The Bible is the written Word of God, and it is treasured by many. But it is also an ancient book about people and cultures very different than us. Thus, while we know we should read it, many of us have a hard time understanding the Bible. In this updated edition of Knowing Scripture, R. C. Sproul helps us dig out the meaning of Scripture for ourselves. The author says, "The theme of this book is not how to read the Bible but how to study the Bible." He presents in simple, basic terms a commonsense approach to studying Scripture and gives eleven practical guidelines for biblical interpretation and applying what we learn. With a minimum of technical jargon, Sproul tackles some of the knotty questions regarding differences of interpreting the Bible, including
  • discovering the meanings of biblical words
  • understanding Hebrew poetry, proverbs and parables
  • approaching historical and didactic passages
  • being careful with predictive prophecy
  • discerning how culture conditions the Bible
  • choosing and using Bible translations, commentaries, Bible software and other helps
Knowing Scripture is a basic book for both beginning Bible readers and experienced students of Scripture.

    All the books from Teacher R.C. Sproul tells it like it is! He brings this book down to like you "want" to dig in The Word, and not just "should". If you have difficulty understanding The Word, this book will help you to have more Zeal for God and what The Word really is telling you! I would recommend this to any one who wants to " apply" The Word, rather than just to say, I "read" The Word!

    Excellent intro to biblical interpretation

    This review was written for Knowing Scripture.
    I read this book during my time in bible college for the introductory class on biblical interpretation. This is a great introductory text on Biblical Hermeneutics (the science of interpreting the Bible). There are many other texts on this topic, but the conciseness of this book makes it highly approachable for laypeople. R.C. Sproul (who is a master at taking difficult concepts and breaking them down for the average churchgoer) shows that studying the Bible need not be a difficult task, but that a few simple guidelines can make it a workable task for anyone who truly wants to plumb the depths of the riches of the word of God. With this text, anyone doing bible study can avoid some of the elementary mistakes many people make in attempting to interpret the Bible, and be able to accurately discern its meaning, which will aid in its application in all other areas of life.

    This is another must read book by the master teacher, R. C. Sproul. It is a concise, well thought out instruction manual on interpreting Scripture. Besides the value of such instruction to the believer, it is an excellent aide in the field of apologetics when unbelievers fail to apply the rules of interpretation which often leads to their error. I highly recommend it.

    It reminds us Christians of the need to study, not just read, God's Word.
