Item description for Understanding and Applying the Bible by Robertson McQuilkin...
Overview "If the Bible was given to reveal the truth and not hide it, God must intend that we understand it." Hermeneutics has been called "the art of interpretation," but it has come to be perceived as a complicated thing. Combating that notion, Robertson McQuilkin has written a solid introduction to the ins and outs of biblical hermeneutics and how it can be used to interpret the Bible in practical ways.

Reviews - What do customers think about Understanding and Applying the Bible?
A help for hermeneutics Jul 25, 2002
Need help understanding what the Bible says? This book is the basics of Hermeneutics (the science of interpretation). It reviews all biblical genres of literature including poetry, prophesy, didactic, and narratives. Also, interpretation is not finished until the interpreter has applied the truths to his own life. This book also shows you how to rightly divide the word of truth in proper application to yourself.
Incredible! Jul 30, 2001
I used this text in a biblical hermenuetics course at my college, and it was one of the most satisfying and meaningful courses I have taken. McQuilkin's book was the basis of it. Clear, insightful, and delightfully correct! Highly recommended.
