Some portions of the Bible appear mysterious and hard to understand. When we read prophecy, we wonder how it applies to us today. When we read a parable, several meanings may come to mind. How do we know which is correct? Poetry and proverbs may seem obscure. The letters to churches don't seem to connect to us. How do we read each of these types of Bible literature in a way that is both faithful to the text and authoritative for our lives? This guide points the way.
