How to Understand the BibleSKU: GR-10 | by Barry Baggott
This book examines some important principles for correctly interpreting the Bible and correctly applying it to our time. It is written in a way that is accessible to as many people as possible, for the Bible is not the exclusive domain of scholars. Fortunately, the rules to respect are matters of common sense: for example, one must take into account the grammar, the context, and everything else the Bible says about a given subject. Additionally, one must learn to recognize whether a passage uses figurative language or if it must be understood to the letter. Finally, one must avoid certain attitudes that hinder understanding. Whether you are a preacher or Bible teacher, a new Christian, or even an enthusiast who sees a need for some advice about reading the Bible in an intelligent manner before drawing conclusions about it, this book is for you.
