The Bible is the written Word of God, and it is treasured by many. But it is also an ancient book about people and cultures very different than what now exists. Thus, while Christians know they should read it, many of them have a hard time understanding the Bible. In this updated edition of Knowing Scripture, R. C. Sproul helps dig out the meaning of Scripture for personal understanding. The author says, 'The theme of this book is not how to read the Bible but how to study the Bible.' He presents in simple, basic terms a commonsense approach to studying Scripture and gives eleven practical guidelines for biblical interpretation and applying what is learned. With a minimum of technical jargon, Sproul tackles some of the knotty questions regarding differences of interpreting the Bible, including: discovering the meanings of biblical words; understanding Hebrew poetry, proverbs and parables; approaching historical and didactic passages; being careful with predictive prophecy; discerning how culture conditions the Bible; and choosing and using Bible translations, commentaries, Bible software & other helps.
