Reviews - What do customers think about Studying, Interpreting, and Applying the Bible?
Good book Feb 1, 2007
I had to have this for a class I was taking, so I probably would not have ordered it otherwise. The author takes a rather scientific approach to study, which may appeal to some. While not my preferred methodology, it still holds some good insights.
Good into for Bible study Aug 12, 2004
This was a book that I had picked up for a class at Moody. I must say it went very well with their supplement material for a college class. It takes the student through the process of what to look for how too pull out key text, how to hold thing in context, how to cross reference, background, and a whole lot more. I recommend this book for any one who wants a strait forward look at basic Bible study. If you are looking for a book a little deeper on the hermeneutical side of things this may not be for you. However it does go into a little detail on hermeneutics toured the end and can definitely help prepare you for something a little deeper.
The Bible was written to ordinary people, like you and me. Jan 13, 2004
No book of the Bible has as its subtitle, "For theologians." Every book of the Bible was written by men under inspiration of the Holy Spirit and it was expected that ordinary men and women would be able to read, understand, and follow the commands in it. However, it was written in another language, another culture, and another time. Jackson and Henrichsen have written a well documented, well laid out book that explores the basic principles of how to Observe what the Bible says, Interpret what it means in any culture, in English, and to apply it in the 21st Century. They do not tell you, per se, what it means. They teach you how to discover that for yourself -- not through just one method, but through several. This is a basic, easy to follow book that is good for anybody who wants to understand the Bible, or understand it better.
