Understanding and Using the Bible
Here is an engaging and exciting introduction to biblical methods and practices of study, edited by two trusted teachers, Christopher J. H. Wright and Jonathan Lamb, in collaboration with a diverse array of expert contributors.
Part One explores key Christian beliefs about the Bible and why it matters, guides effective use and application of the Bible in different cultural and social contexts, teaches on right and wrong use of the Bible, models different possible ways of approaching and using the Bible with integrity, and encourages readers to take the Bible as a while and build a biblical world view.
Part Two illustrates examples of applied Bible use in different contexts with contributions from a variety of authors.
The International Study Guides are clear and accessible resources, contextual and ecumenical in content and missional in direction. The contributors are theological educators who come from different countries and different religious backgrounds and bring practical emphasis alongside contemporary scholarly reflection.
