Practical tools for interpreting the bible

The Bible is the written Word of God, and it is treasured in many of our homes. But it is also an ancient book about people and cultures very different from us. Thus, while we know we should read the Bible, many of us don't because we have a hard time understanding it.

In this expanded edition of Knowing Scripture, R. C. Sproul helps us dig out the meaning of Scripture for ourselves. 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 common-sense 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 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
● choosing and using Bible translations, commentaries, Bible software and other helps

Knowing Scripture is a basic book for both beginning Bible readers and those who have been at it for a long time.

R. C. Sproul (1939-2017) was founder and chairman of Ligonier Ministries in Orlando, Florida, and co-pastor of Saint Andrew's Chapel in Sanford, Florida. He was the author of many books, including The Truth of the Cross and The Holiness of God.
