Publisher's Summary

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.

      "Bible Study Primer"
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      This is a great book, easy to listen to, yet full of precious instruction for solid Bible study. I recommend this to everyone serious about reading the bible either for or against it.


      What was one of the most memorable moments of Knowing Scripture?

      The rules for 'private interpretation' and 'implicit statements interpreted by explicit statements' were very eye opening and extremely helpful in finding what the author of the bible meant to communicate. "Truth is not subjective, but objective!"


      What about Rob Dean’s performance did you like?

      the reader performed his job well. Present, but not distracting...

      "Truly blessed"
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      Yes, I want to send this book to everyone I know, I wish when I started my journey I was introduced to this book, but it is never too late. I learned that reading the bible is essential as part pf a Christian life.
      So much in our world is changing quickly and we have to come up with new ways to handle things, well its the same with reading the bible. Finding newness in your spirit while reading because the bible is alive and it ought to revive you. This book helps with that.


      What does Rob Dean bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

      His emphasis on certain action words and confidence in the reading made e want to pause the CD and do some research for myself.


      Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

      This book made me think more about how I read Scripture, the resources I use and how to use them us to get the most from them.


      Any additional comments?

      One of my favorite quotes was "you can understand the basic message of the bible" the newspaper and some of these blogs are harder to read. Refresh your devotion time with a new improved way to reading the bible.
