When Christians know God's will on a particular issue, no human reason can or should change their mind. However, the average Christian sometimes is awash in conflicting ideas about what the Bible means. In those times, people may feel inadequate to pick up a Bible, and try to read and understand it on their own.
Dr. Kenneth Schenck's Making Sense of God's Word offers practical advice for the average Christian who desires to read and understand God's Word. Helping the reader sort through the issues of context, genre, and theories of interpretation, Schenck gives practical principles that restore confidence in reading and interpreting the difficult passages of Scripture. After reading this simple, practical guide, readers will feel confident that they can hear God's Word for themselves.
