This book really opens you up to a whole new level of understanding of how to read the Bible. I have been a minister for 23 years, read many books, taken a class about how to interpret the Bible, by far this is most readable and understandable book I have ever read. Definitely worth the money and time to read!
This book was life-changing for me. I could finally study Scripture for myself. I now use it as a teaching tool. The organization is a little unwieldy. I found it necessary to write a flow-sheet to remind myself of the different things I was looking for in a text. It works hard at sticking with principles of hermeneutics. If I had the opportunity, I would probably give it 4.5 stars, but it a book that is well worth having and using.
this book was recommended to me by my senior and youth pastors at my church to help me be able to study the bible in a way that is easy to understand but help me grow as well. and it's in a format that is easy to read and do in a decent amount of time, especially when your free time is limited.
