Who the book is for: Anyone interested in Bible study and theology
Rating: 5 out of 5
J. Scott Duvall and J. Daniel Hays provided the evangelical world a clear and effective guide to reading, interpreting, and applying the Bible when Zondervan released their book GRASPING GOD’S WORD. Designed to walk believers through a journey with God through discovering and applying the transformational theological principles in the Bible. But while GRASPING GOD’S WORD was all about correct Bible interpretation, there is a need for grasping the overall story of the Bible and how our stories relate to it.
LIVING GOD’S WORD by J. Scott Duvall and J. Daniel Hays is the perfect companion to GRASPING GOD’S WORD in the journey to discovering God more through the Bible. LIVING GOD’S WORD takes a look at the Bible’s metanarrative and shows how the whole Bible comprises one grand story with God as its main character. The authors divide their book up into the major sections represented in the biblical story, and they do this in a memorable way by titling each of their sections with a C name such as Creation, Covenant, Church, etc. The authors encourage readers to get into reading the Bible and provide ways for doing that. Each chapter closes with an application section that relates our story to the biblical story.
The authors of LIVING GOD’S WORD are great at guiding the journey through God’s word, and this book is a helpful addition to any Bible study library.
I received this book for free for review from Zondervan, and the opinions contained in this review are completely my own
