Dig Deeper! Or that's what the title to Nigel Beynon and Andrew Sach's book encouraged me to do as I read the Bible. Dig Deeper! Tools to unearth the Bible's treasure is a short 160 page book published by IVP UK, aiming to equip believers with the methods they need to improve their reading and understanding of the Bible.

The book contains 17 different `tools' for getting the most from the Bible including, the structure tool, the translations tool and the copycat tool, among others. Each `tool' is given a few pages of explanation, with a useful "worked example" and then followed up with exercises to do yourself. This makes the book easy to study and absorb, as the repetition of the concepts through the examples and exercises works it into your memory.

A word of warning however, this is not a scholarly book and nor is it in depth but neither does it claim to be this. In the bibliography at the back of the book other more advanced books are suggested for the reader, if they feel they would like to go further. This is a book that I cannot fail to recommend highly enough to the average non-scholarly Christian, providing an excellent entry level guide to getting the most out of the Bible.

This book is golden and I think it should accompany every copy of the Bible.

Over the centuries, the scripture has been misused in some very dangerous ways - justification of Apartheid, the growth of various cults, the oppression of scientific knowledge growth (From some, not all), etc. This book helps one to avoid the pitfalls of misunderstanding the Bible and to enjoy the blessing that is to be found in understanding it correctly. With 16 tools for understanding any Bible passage, I find this book to be an invaluable help especially for the more challenging chapters.

Naturally, the techniques in this book aren't exhaustive but they serve well to encourage one to ask the right questions.

If you truly want to understand the Bible well then you need to learn how to read it, so get this book!

Really useful book! it's a fairly standard sized book, but I read through it in 2 days easily without feeling like I was smashing my brain up. The chapters are short and to the point and it covers the 'tools' of tackling bible passages. I can see it being very useful in the future for quick reference too!

A great resource written in friendly style but with depth. We are about to use it as a group study and I am excited about the potential for this book to help lots of people to understand the Bible better.

Format: Paperback
Having not read a book before this for about 4 years I couldn't have chosen a better book than this.

There's so many different things in the Bible which I just didn't pick up beforehand and can so easily be missed

The "tools" are sort of in 2 categories. The first deals with practical stuff to help you understand what's being said so that you interpret it correctly, especially in an age with so many false teachings and false interpretations based on half truths from the bible, but I won't go into that.

The second moves on to thinking towards how best you would fit into what's being taught by the bible. It shows where you should or shouldn't apply yourself, again I suppose this helps prevent misinterpreting the Bible.

Overall, A brilliant read for new AND more "mature" Christians.

Format: Paperback
I think this book is very helpful. It is easy to read and gives good advice, which would be applicable to reading all sorts of books, not just the bible, though it focusses particularly on understanding the bible.

But there is one thing missing, and it is a huge oversight, I think. The bible is about Christ. You could conceivably miss this in reading the Old Testament, but it is, I hope, glaringly obvious in the New Testament.

The book gives many sensible tools for unearthing the riches in the bible, but never mentions the fact that you will fail to understand the bible and miss its message if you don't ask yourself, how does this part of the bible relate to Jesus Christ and God's plan to reveal himself to the world through him?

I think this should be tool number one in the next edition of the book.
