Robert Plummer wrote this book with a college or seminary Bible course in mind. “Ideally,” he writes, “it would serve as a textbook…” but would also “be beneficial to any curious Christian.” His goal "was to be accessible without being simplistic and scholarly without being pedantic, while always keeping an eye to practical questions and real-life application by the Christian reader."

There are several good introductions on biblical interpretation available for the committed Christian, church leader, and college or seminary professor. In 40 Questions About Interpreting the Bible, I have found one that serves my teaching ministry well. With Plummer's help, students exit my course more confident in how to ask the right kind of questions, yet more humble in realizing the care (and prayer) it takes to "rightly handle the word of truth" (2 Tim 2:15).
