Just as a rock climber's handhold enables him to master the mountain, a firm grasp on God's Word empowers us to traverse the challenging, risky slopes of life. Grasping God's Word helps college students, beginning seminary students, and other serious readers get a grip on the solid rock of Scripture -- how to read it, how to interpret it, and how to apply it.
Grasping God's Word progresses through the following five sections:
- How to Read the Book -- Basic Tools
- Contexts -- Then and Now
- Meaning and Application
- The Interpretive Journey -- New Testament
- The Interpretive Journey -- Old Testament
