I have read a lot of books about how to study the Bible. I used this book the past 6 months to teach the Adult CE class at my church on How to Study the Bible. This is by far the best book i've read on this topic. Practical. Accessible. Insightful. I recommend this as a must read for all believers. ( )

Really good book exploring the Bible and how to read it. Explores literary genres in Scripture, exegesis and hermeneutics ( )
  cbinstead | Jul 5, 2020 |
The Bible contains portions written in different genres of literature. This book explores the nuances of these various genres and the immense implications they have on proper interpretation of texts. This is an invaluable study for anyone who is serious about understanding what the biblical authors were trying to say.
