From the Back Cover
Excellent, practical, and accurate. It leads students from the most fundamental building blocks of interpretation (including skills that most beginning students lack) through all the essential processes.
--Craig S. Keener, Professor of New Testament, Eastern Seminary
Just as a rock climber's handhold enables him to master the mountain, a firm grasp on God's Word empowers us to traverse the challenging, risky slopes of life. This workbook is designed for use with the textbook Grasping God's Word. While the textbook shows you the principles and tools of interpretation, the workbook lets you try them out by applying them to specific genres and contexts. Together, these books will help you get a grip on the solid rock of Scripture--how to read it, how to interpret it, and how to apply it.

This book although hardback is surprisingly light and so easy to carry around. As a study guide it is clear and well written. Looking forward to working my way through. It was recommended by my Pastor as one of the books he used in Seminary and I must say it was a great tip.
