By R.C. Sproul - PCA.

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 expanded 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

Now with a new preface, Knowing Scripture is a basic book for both beginning Bible readers and experienced students of Scripture.

R. C. Sproul (PhD, Whitefield Theological Seminary) is founder and chairman of Ligonier Ministries, an international Christian education ministry located near Orlando, Florida. He is also co-pastor of Saint Andrew's Chapel in Sanford, Florida, chancellor of Reformation Bible College and executive editor of Tabletalk magazine.
