In book 1, entitled Understanding God's Word Stibbs sets out the basic principles of right understanding and proper interpretation. All Christians will benefit from this excellent foundation: the insight here will stay with you for a lifetime of Bible reading.
Book 2, Expounding God's Word draws out the central principles and methods of biblical exposition, with plenty of practical illustrations and examples. It will help those leading Bible studies, teaching or preaching to get God's message across in a relevant and easily understandable way.Lastly, book 3 Obeying God's Word shows us that God's word has practical authority, which determines what we believe, what we teach, and how we act. If you believe God meant his word to be read with all your mind, and also all your heart and all your soul, this is the book for you. Alan Stibbs knew there was a danger in growing our critical knowledge of the Bible--without responding in faith and God-given obedience, in reverence and right living.
