Book 17 — How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth

How To Read the Bible For All Its Worth is an excellent book on reading the Bible as it’s meant to be read. The first couple of chapters explain why the Bible needs to be read carefully and how to choose a good translation. The following chapters each cover a genre of the Bible and walk through proper exegesis and hermeneutics of each genre. If everyone would read this book and put its principles into practice when reading the Bible, there wouldn’t be the horrendous, harmful misunderstandings that abound in the church. Yes, God’s Word is the same yesterday, today, and forever, but it was also written in a specific language and culture, and in many cases to specific groups of people. This book will help you sort through all that and learn the right questions to ask yourself as you read.
