Skills for reading God's word

Understanding your Bible provides you with a model and trains you in skills for basic biblical interpretation. You will become familiar with different versions of the Bible, and techniques for examining biblical material in context. Andrew Reid shares his hermeneutic model which is used around the world. It will prepare you to tackle any Bible passage for a variety of purposes: personal reading, Bible studies, sermon preparation, or exegetical talks.
