Grasping God's Word Third Edition
Just as a rock climber's handhold enables him to master the mountain, a firm grasp on God's Word empowers us to traverse the challenging, risky slopes of life. Grasping God's Word helps college students, beginning seminary students, and other serious readers get a grip on the solid rock of Scripture—how to read it, how to interpret it, and how to apply it. Filling the gap between approaches that are too simple and others that are too technical, Grasping God's Word starts by equipping you with general principles of interpretation, then moves on to apply those principles to specific genres and contexts. Features include those proven in classrooms across the country. There are hands-on exercises to guide you through the interpretation process and an emphasis on real-life application.
