Product Description

From the Back Cover

Are you sure you know what your favorite Bible verses mean?
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."--Philippians 4:13
"'For I know the plans I have for you, ' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'"--Jeremiah 29:11
"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good."--Romans 8:28
These and a surprising number of well-known Scripture passages are commonly misused or misunderstood. Even well-intentioned Christians take important verses out of context, and pastor Eric J. Bargerhuff has seen the effects: confusion, poor decisions, and a distorted view of God's Word.
In this concise yet thorough book, Bargerhuff helps all of us understand what these verses meant when they were written so we can apply them accurately today. Providing fascinating historical and scriptural insights, he shows how to read God's promises and instructions in context and appreciate even more the Bible's eternal message.

Found this book very interesting and helpful and would definitely refer back to it in the future. The main chapters I enjoyed were "for I know the plans I have for you...", "guard your heart" and "I will not give you more than you can bear". The book is not cynical and judgemental of people who misuse these bible verses. Rather it encourages and enthuses readers to delve deeper into the bigger picture of each text. Only 4 stars because while it has inspired me to look more closely at the text and made me aware of the dangers of misquoting the bible, a few of the verses highlighted can be appropriately supported elsewhere in the bible so felt he was splitting hairs a bit at some points. Would still thoroughly recommend.

I mostly enjoyed this and found some of it helpful but the author lets the book down with his take on "Do not judge" from Matthew 7:1.

The first thing to say on this verse is that Jesus left no room for caveats and yet most Christians seem to find some in there somewhere. Sadly the author is amongst those.

Quite how anyone can write about Matthew 7:1 without visiting Romans 2:1-3 and the story of the woman caught in adultery in John 8:3-11 is beyond me. To then go on and talk about the issue of addressing sin in a brother's life in the context of Matthew 7:1 is quite bizarre. Yes as brethren we have a responsibility to each other to point out sin but it should never be done in a judgemental fashion, though we Christians do like a bit of condemnation of others. Jesus deals with this issue clearly in Matthew 18:15, keeping it totally seperate from the notion of judgement. In Matthew 7:5 Jesus tells us to deal with our own sin before we get stuck into our brothers.

For me this ruined the book.
