I found this little volume a tremendous help in properly interpeting the Bible. Sproul takes you through a point-by-point process of the art and science of hermenutics. Like a skillful surgeon Sproul disects the Word and demonstrates the profound wealth of spirtual nuggets lying under the surface of the text. After digesting the book I felt like I feel through the thin ice of the surface of the text into the deep abyss of Biblical truth. If your a Biblical student you will gain a greater understanding of the nuances, and idioms of Biblical history.
