Publisher's Description

Many people admire and even revere the Bible, but they simply do not understand what they read, much less how to study Scripture. Yet they wish they could. In this insightful and alternately amusing guide, Professor Mark Yarbrough shows how easy and gratifying it is to unlock the hidden truths of God's Word and to discover a world where reading the Bible doesn't just satisfy our curiosity, but changes our life.

To do this, the reader will step into the seminary classroom and observe the practical principles-the tricks of the trade-for becoming a more effective student of the Bible. But Yarbrough has made sure that his writing style and general approach will be appealing to both academic students and those involved in lay-level Bible study.

Real life is whacky and in-your-face. Studying Scripture should be too.

Yarbrough serves as Vice President for Academic Affairs and Academic Dean, and as a professor in the Bible Exposition at Dallas Theological Seminary - as well as part of the pastoral teaching team at Centerpoint Church in Mesquite, Texas. A native Texan, Mark is a graduate of Dallas Christian College (DCC) and Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS). Prior to joining the faculty and administration of DTS in 2001, he served in several ministries. For 10 years he served at a church in southeast Dallas as youth and preaching pastor. After graduating from DTS, he spent several years at DCC, serving in the Bible department and part of the presidential leadership team. After transitioning to DTS and upon the completion of his Ph.D., he was appointed as Vice President for Communications. That role included an active engagement with the local and national media. Mark is a regular conference speaker and also travels internationally to teach, preach, and consult on theological education. He has been married to Jennifer, his high school sweetheart, for over 20 years. They reside just east of Downtown Dallas in Forney, Texas and have four children: Kayla, Jacob, Kayci, and Joseph.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. Teaches you how to see what all is inside the Bible. Each chapter begins with a story then follows with a practical suggestion about how to properly read your Bible. It's well organized with several fresh and smart ideas to help you "see" more clearly what you are reading. Excellent for learning new reading skills too.

    For the last several months I've often referred to this book as a reference when I wasn't getting any answers. With the suggested online resources, it was much easier to discover info on cultural and language barriers.

    Good resourceful material:

    -How to distinguish the different genres. Narratives, poetry, prophecy, letters, etc.

    -A concise OT /NT summary for getting chronologically oriented.

    -Doctrines we should know.

    -Instruction in the OT narrative chapter revealed unseen things in the book of Jonah (good things to know when you are teaching kids).

    -The application process is different than other how to read the Bible manuals (more spirtual transformational I think).

    -And it was helpful to find a glossary for theological terms that I'll never remember otherwise.

    I highly recommend this book and think that Christian book clubs might enjoy reading it and then doing a bible story to build some reading skills. The chapter stories are all delightfully funny (favorite one- I Twust You but I enjoyed them all). Anyone who would like to learn more about how to read the Bible should find this book readable and the skills very doable.

    The book seemed to be just more of the "same o, same o." I expected a whole lot more out of a book with such a title. I learned more about how to read the Bible from The Teaching Company's course: How to Write Great Sentences.
