A good Bible Dictionary 2. A good commentary 3.
Don Stewart :: Did the Biblical Writers Always Understand That They Were Recording the Word of God?
A good history book about 1st century Palestine, Judaism, Jerusalem, etc. Unfortunately, there are no recommendations for any of the above necessities. Cosmic fail. I did appr I wanted to adore this book. I did appreciate the third section of the book where Dr. Guthrie interviews people about relevancy. The message about praying through the Psalms was great. Michael Card was pretty insightful about Lamentations. Of course, David Platt was very insightful about the need for Bible literacy. I guess my expectations were too high for this book. I expected it to provide resources for me to use now.
Instead, it told me to go find other resources. May 01, Jill rated it it was ok. The reading plans are ambitious for daily study, but they are a great way to tackle studying the Bible. I will not get through the entire Bible in a year but I have a plan to read through it and will cover a good portion of the text in time. With regard to this specific book, the text is mostly conversations of the author with other biblical theologists.

As I got further into my Bible readings, I found myself reading less of this book; but I think that is the overall message from the author- read the Word for yourself, understand what it says. Wonderful book Well-written and easy to understand, this book is a guide to reading and studying God's Word in a variety of ways and settings, from personal and family devotions to small groups and even corporately reading and studying the Bible as a church.. Guthrie himself is a professor at Union University and the book, as one might expect, is heavy on facts. He interviews scholars, pastors, and, for the chapter on reading the Bible as a family, his wife.
Even though he is a professor, he firm Wonderful book Well-written and easy to understand, this book is a guide to reading and studying God's Word in a variety of ways and settings, from personal and family devotions to small groups and even corporately reading and studying the Bible as a church.. Even though he is a professor, he firmly believes that the Bible is a book that can be understood by anyone and the style in which he writes is very personal and down to earth. The only thing missing from the e-book version are the Bible reading plans found in the back of the traditional book.
Reading this book is time very well spent and I give it a very good recommendation. Mar 09, David rated it it was amazing.
I am enjoying this book very much. It is deliberately written in an easy conversational style. It is a little stylised and wooden, but pleasant enough. There is some great advice here and plenty of useful material, no matter what your previous experience of reading the Bible is.

12 LIFE GIVING Bible Verses To Conquer Depression and Hopelessness
The conversational interview approach was effective and somewhat humorous when he interviewed himself. Love the summary bullet points at the end I am a bullet-point kinda person. And I did get a lot out of the Transformation activities at the end of each chapter. This is a great book for anyone who is new to reading the Bible or who is experienced.. Well Really enjoyed this. Well done! Aug 04, Ryan rated it liked it.
I think this makes the important ideas clear without having to wade through a lot of scholarship to get there. Be prepared to chuckle at the level at which the author seeks to keep things relational and conversational Great introduction to reading the Bible well.
Very good at simplifying difficult concepts for young or immature believers. Some of the interviews come off a bit odd ex: the author interviewing himself but there overall execution is helpful. Mar 07, Scott rated it it was amazing. A great book to help a person understand how the Bible fits together as a story.
