Thus, while we kw we should read it, many of us have a hard time understanding the Bible. In this expanded edition ofKwing Scripture, R. C. Sproul helps us dig out the meaning of Scripture for ourselves. The author says, The theme of this book is t 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 we learn. With a minimum of technical jargon, Sproul tackles some of the ktty 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

discerning how culture conditions the Bible
choosing and using Bible translations, commentaries, Bible software and other helps
Now with a new preface, Kwing Scripture is a basic book for both beginning Bible readers and experienced students of Scripture.
