2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Bart Breen TOP 500 REVIEWER on Jan. 30 2011
Format: Paperback
Some people will get very upset with the title, because after all, for the true believer, all you need is the Bible itself, right?

Well, no. For one thing the Bible itself tells you that you need the Holy Spirit to help understand, so there is that.

But you also need to study to show yourself approved, meditate and approach it in a humble matter. The Bible was written over 2,000 years ago and in some portions even far longer. It is possible, just possible mind you, that there have been changes in language and culture that require some work on the reader's part to understand what is being said the same way a hearer of that message would have understood it in their day.

That is where this book comes into play. This is both a good introductory text for the student who wants to enter into the realms of textual, historical, redactive, literary etc criticism. It is also written to be at the level of the average layman who wants to understand more for their own study and growth.

Evangelical Christians often get very nervous about this type of book. They see much that has served to diminish the Bible over the years as coming from the "liberal" religious, academic camps as seeking to diminish what the Bible plainly says.

As delicately as I can state it ...... Evangelicals need to get over it and enter the field themselves. If the Bible is true, it must be true enough to stand tough scrutiny. The opinion of this reviewer is that it does stand that scrutiny, but as a student of the Bible you must expect over time that your understanding will change and grow. That is called discipleship and growth. It's a good thing!

This is a good study guide for born-again Protestant Christians. I don't recommend this if you have other beliefs, since it is literally written towards Christians. However, if you'd like to see an example of an actually well-written academic guide from a Protestant Christian perspective, I do recommend it. It is actually quite logical and scholarly and it would be beneficial for any person who wants to understand what's behind a lot of the common (often illogical) uses of the Bible in popular types of sermons or resources. It teaches you what to look out for and how to improve your critical thinking as well as giving historical background. Any Christian who intends to use quotes or passages from the Bible seriously (for writing sermons, speeches, or books) should read this first.

I learned so much from this book. There is so much I got from this book about how to look at the different books of the Bible. I had no idea of some of the content presented in this book even mattered!
