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 us. Thus, while we know we should read it, many of us have a hard time understanding the Bible.

In this updated 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 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 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. Download and start listening now!

      " RC Sproul has a passion for the word of God and I will always enjoy reading his book with the expectation of having a hunger for the word of God. The importance of the word in my daily life and the application to the word. I like that we are always learning truth and we may stray from what God is revealing to us, however, God is faithful to lead to the truth. Being our sinful nature, we can intrepret the word to fit the culture. Marriage is the hot topic of such intrepretation however, even Jesus refers us to the begininng of what marriage should be. He even gives us a warning about our hearts which is a key to reading the word. I appreciate the warning of sensuous christians that live by their feelings and have not a need to study the word of God. My favorite quote is the issue of faith is not so much whether we believe in God, but whether we believe the God we believe in. We have the word for that very reason. It is not a easy thing to be in the word daily with a devoted heart. A prayer of mine that it will become the air I breathe. "

      " This is a great book for people who want tips on how to study the Bible but haven't yet. An easy read that explains some of the history of Bible translations. I especially found the suggested reading plan for people who haven't made it through the Bible yet to be extremely helpful and plan on starting that right away. "
