I'm learning a lot from this text.

It was a very appropriate book for the College students in Trinidad and Tobago Bible College to study during a module class I was asked to come and teach for the last two weeks. Receiving the book promptly, in good shape, and at a reasonable price, allowed me to develop a reading list for the students, and extract information needed to develop a 125 page syllabus for the students to refer to in their personal libraries.

Thank you again for your service to an ever widening community.

Sincerely,

Rev. Steven J. Boyle, B. Sc.; M.A.; M. Div.; Th. M.

"How to Understand Your Bible" teaches you how to effectively study your Bible. This is the best book I've read on studying your Bible, partly because it goes further than the two other books I've read on the topic. It covered things like comparing confusing verses in different translations; using the Bible to interpret itself; using concordances, Bible dictionaries, and commentaries; and what things to take note of when reading. It encouraged the reader to consider the context of the verse, the author's purpose, and the historical and cultural background in which it was written.

The authors also taught how to take grammar, verb tenses, and figures of speech into consideration. They clearly explained the different figures of speech as well as symbols, types, idioms, parables, and the structure of Hebrew poetry. This additional information could make the difference between understanding a confusing passage or not.

I appreciated that the authors promoted studying the Bible as a whole to get a balanced, accurate view of what the Bible teaches on any subject. They included some suggestions on how to do this even if you don't have a lot of time. I also appreciated that the authors applied the information in each chapter on several verses as examples and then suggested specific verses for the reader to try it out on, too.

I enjoy reading commentaries, books on the cultural background, and such, but some of the information was still new to me. Other things were things I only recently learned after years of studying the Bible. If you went to a Bible college and took Bible courses, then this book may not hold anything new. However, I think it's useful for everyone else interested in understanding their Bible better, and I highly recommend it.

I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.
