Howard Hendrick is such a wise sage package in simple language. This book is a masterpiece. It tells us how to read the Bible, to better understand and appreciate God's Word. If you ever want to learn about how to take a deeper dive into Scriptures, this book is the best roadmap. ( )

Book is good. Easy and simple to start learning how to study God's Word. Workbook is ok... I think i would only use a few examples to get started, but im more in favor of teaching by going through a real bible study.... Verse by verse, alongside and learning by example and practice ( )

This book is part of my collection that really focuses in on Biblical Commentary more than anything else (including some well known authors in the theological world). All of these books haven't been read cover to cover, but I've spent a lot of time with them and they've been helpful in guiding me through difficult passages (or if I desire to dig deeper). ( )

Hendricks writes both for the theologian and the novice Bible reader. He's clear, simple, and profoundly helpful in understanding how to appropriately read the Bible in the context of its original audience and meaning. This book was required reading for my seminary courses and, thus, I assumed it would be lofty in its presentation. However, Hendricks has a knack for making what would otherwise be complex ideas quite simple and accessible to every reader, regardless of age, background, or education. I highly recommend this book both for the avid studier of the Bible and for the curious lay reader of the Bible. ( )
