5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, useful, evangelical approach to bible study, 3 Dec 2002
By 
William Fross (London, UK) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)   
The title says it all; but I would stress that this is not a book to read cover-to-cover. I would suggest instead reading the chapter that is appropriate to the part of the Bible that you are now reading, or want to study; for example, is it a gospel, and epistle, a psalm, Revelation, or something else? Each chapter points out key characteristics of the different forms of literature in the Bible, and the authors highlight issues such as different translations, ideological bias in interpretation, and so on.
Thought-provoking and stuffed with useful information, ideas and advice, this is something well worth having on your bookshelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent conservative introduction to biblical reading, 17 Jan 2002
Fee and Stuart do a fine job at introducing scripture's themes and genres for the lay person. Their approach to different passages is very readable and practically orientated. There is a useful appendix recommending good commentaries, also.

5.0 out of 5 stars What sort of book is this?, 17 Jan 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth: A Guide to Understanding the Bible (Paperback)
If there is any book modern people need to be able to read intelligently, it is the Bible. It hads had more impact on the West, and the world, than any other work of literature.
The crucial question when you read a book is: what sort of book is this? What was the author actually trying to say?
McFee and Stuart help anyone (believer or not) reading the many books which make up the Bible to ask and answer this question. This helps the reader actually do justice to what the writers were saying to their original audience, and hence stand a chance of making sense of what (if anything) they have to say to us now.
The book is short, clear and practical. It helps someone reading the Bible to get away from the preconceptions and misconceptions which surround any "religious" book and reach a balanced conclusion as to how to respond to it.
I would strongly recommend this book to anyone intending to read the Bible, whether or not you have read it before, regardless of whether you are a Christian, a Muslim or any other sort of religious believer, or an interested non-believer.

By A Customer
This review is from: How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth: A Guide to Understanding the Bible (Paperback)
This book presents the most practical and realistic way a student should pursue Bible Study.If more students of the Bible would latch on to these basic guidelines their lives would be richer for it. These scholors have done us a favor. They have moved the issue from academia to the front lines where it is needed. A must for every Bible student

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book yet written on understanding the Bible., 29 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth: A Guide to Understanding the Bible (Paperback)
The Bible has been used and abused in a myriad of ways. Often the worst offenders have been evangelical Christians. The Kingdom of God could be a different place entirely if every Christian would read and APPLY this book. Fee and Stuart, two evangelical believers, have crafted a book that covers at a basic level all the issues related to reading and applying the Bible in one's life, church, and world. Please buy this book, read it, and use it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for every Christian, 18 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth: A Guide to Understanding the Bible (Paperback)
Fee and Stuart, two well known and respected bible scholars, have transformed years of study in the fields of exegesis and hermenuetics and translated that into a simple, straight forward explanation of biblical interpretation. This book is a must have for any person who desires to understand the great truths presented in the bible and apply them to everyday life. If you have ever asked the question "How will I ever understand this?" about the bible, this book will show you how.
