Product Description


Life is a journey, and like any journey, it requires an accurate, reliable roadmap to get us where we need to go. God has provided such a guide in his Word. But just as a navigator needs to learn how to interpret all the contours and symbols of a map, so also we need to be able to understand how the Bible communicates its directions to us. Journey Into Goda??s Word helps Bible readers acquire these skills and become better at reading, interpreting, and applying the Bible to life. This abridgment of the bestselling college/seminary textbook Grasping Goda??s Word takes the proven principles from that book and makes them accessible to people in the church. It starts with general principles of interpretation, then moves on to apply those principles to specific genres and contexts. Hands-on exercises guide readers through the interpretation process, with an emphasis on real-life application.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource! 3 Sep 2008
By Jeff Noble - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This condensation of the text book version "Grasping God's Word" is a fantastic resource for all Christians and students of scripture. The best chapter is probably "What Do We Bring to the Text?" as it explores our predispositions to read the Bible with our pre-understandings rather than applying good, universal interpretative principles to truly "grasp" the author's intent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and practical 21 Dec 2011
By Kerbasa - Published on
The book, Journey Into God's Word, was a assigned as part of a college class of mine. I was very impressed with the simplicity that the authors use in their approach to understanding scriptures. They employ a simple four step approach that includes:

1. Grasping what the text meant to the original audience.
2. Discovering the differences between that audience and today's reader. i.e. culture, situation.
3. Identifying the theological principle(s) in the text.
4. How should individual Christians today apply the theological principle in their lives?

I appreciate how the book focuses on practical application of God's word in everyday living and gives helpful methods on how to understand what the author of the biblical text was saying and what it means to the modern audience. Clear, concise and to the point, this book is great for those who are new to studying scripture's as it gives them a fantastic and well balanced approach to studying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Basic Intro to Biblical Hermeneutics! 1 Feb 2012
By Denis R Root - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a highly readable intro to Biblical Hermeneutics. I just used it to introduce this topic to an adult Bible class with 30+ people - I recommended this book!
Reviewer Joyce is mistaken regarding the Kindle vs. Print version of this book. The OT 'narrative' section she says is "missing" is not in either version of this book, but is in Duvall/Hays longer book on this topic: Grasping God's Word. Joyce's resulting 2-star rating is unfortunate.

It has helped me to view the Bible through other perspective. As a preacher of the Word of God is a great tool to use.
