To get to grips with reading the Bible in the right way is essential, and with the help of this book reminds believers that in the inspired word of God there are different types (genres) throughout the Bible and we need to be aware of what we are reading. It is all God's word, but there are highlighted differences between reading a narrative, poetry, letters, books of the law and historical details.
The book reminds us that we are to look at the original meaning and to read the bible in it's context, remembering to be true to the text while still applying God's word to today. This is a needed reminder for every reader or preacher of the Bible, we don't come up with our opinion, but preach the word of God from the two horizons - original writers intention/readers original understanding and then application today.
An excellent book to gain understanding of the Bible, safeguarding the message of God from being abused or misused. It isn't a bedside read and leave plenty of thinking through time.
