Item description for Journey into God's Word: Your Guide to Understanding and Applying the Bible by J. Scott Duvall & J. Daniel Hays...
Overview Life is a journey, and God?s Word is a roadmap. Like any map, we need to know how to read it in order to make sense of it. Journey Into God?s Word helps Bible readers acquire the skills necessary in order to successfully read, interpret, and apply the Bible to life.
Publishers Description Life is a journey, and like any journey, it requires an accurate, reliable roadmap to get us where we need to go. God has provided such a guide in his Word. But just as a navigator needs to learn how to interpret all the contours and symbols of a map, so also we need to be able to understand how the Bible communicates its directions to us. Journey Into God s Word helps Bible readers acquire these skills and become better at reading, interpreting, and applying the Bible to life. This abridgment of the bestselling college/seminary textbook Grasping God s Word takes the proven principles from that book and makes them accessible to people in the church. It starts with general principles of interpretation, then moves on to apply those principles to specific genres and contexts. Hands-on exercises guide readers through the interpretation process, with an emphasis on real-life application."

Reviews - What do customers think about Journey into God's Word: Your Guide to Understanding and Applying the Bible?
An excellent resource! Sep 3, 2008
This condensation of the text book version "Grasping God's Word" is a fantastic resource for all Christians and students of scripture. The best chapter is probably "What Do We Bring to the Text?" as it explores our predispositions to read the Bible with our pre-understandings rather than applying good, universal interpretative principles to truly "grasp" the author's intent.
