Knowing Scripture October 29, 2007

Posted by Jeremy in Thoughts and Theology.

I was talking about this book to several of my students that I was meeting with last week and was recommending them to read through it. I started getting real excited by the end of the week and am now starting to reread it some and thought I would give a blog spot to it. I highly recommend this book to anyone who hasn’t read it before. If you are interested in buying it check it out at wtsbooks.com they have it for 25% off at $9.75. Below is an quick explanation of the book.

R. C. Sproul helps us dig out the meaning of Scripture for ourselves. He lays the groundwork by discussing why we should study the Bible and how our own personal study relates to interpretation. Then he presents in simple, basic terms the science of interpretation and gives practical guidelines for applying this science.

“Here is a basic book for both beginning Bible readers and those who have been at it for a long time. With his usual common sense and bubbling enthusiasm, Sproul explores why every Christian should study the Bible and why so many get discouraged. He then offers clear explanations of the basic steps of interpretation and gives simple how-to’s for using them. Excellent for beginning Bible readers. R.C. Sproul outlines the principles of textual interpretation of the Bible, offers guidelines for personal application, investigates the role of culture in biblical relevation, and discusses the use of paraphrases, concordances, commentaries, and expositions.”
