5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST read, 2 Aug. 2010
This review is from: How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth (Paperback)
If you want to understand the Bible within it's cultural context (exegesis) and how to apply it to your life (hermeneutics) - [yeah, glad I finally understand those 2 words :P] without going to bible school/college, this is the book for you. Easy to ride, and says a lot in a modest number of pages. It's a good guide that highlights key principles which based on the explanation, you for yourself can decide what you can take or leave. There were a few things I didn't fully agree with in the content, but for the most part, the rationale was acceptable. There were loads of references and suggested readings which I think may be helpful at some other time. But I think it's really good as a reference book all on it's own. And yes, if you do decide to go on to bible college, you can keep it handy as a student of English might keep a thesauraus.
