The Old Testament and the Gospels have three levels of interpretation: historical,
Christological, and prophetic. Because Christ is fully revealed in the New Testament, the
epistles have only two levels, the historical and the prophetic. Much is lost when
Christians only see and study the Scriptures from the historical vintage point. Rightly
Dividing the Word reveals these hidden prophetic treasures to the discerning student.

(God's Word and a Perfect Heart). Milligan introduces the same principles which the apostle Paul stressed with Timothy to "rightly divide the word of truth."
Milligan carefully explains the inspiration of the Scriptures and the importance of doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction. I found the chapter dealing with types and shadows especially interesting. I also received new insights as I became more aware of the reasons behind the use of allegories, parables, and symbols in Jesus' teaching. Other chapters are helpful in understanding God's covenants, the relationship of law and grace, and the role of the Holy Spirit. Each chapter provides an excellent balance of a "line upon line, precept upon precept" presentation of basic Bible doctrine and personal application.
The "assignment" section accompanying each chapter encourage more than a cursory reading and add to the value of the book as a resource for personal or group study.
"Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth: Unlocking the Mysteries of the Bible" is an important resource providing the reader with a reliable road map to a better understanding of the Scriptures.
