No one can read the Bible for long before wondering what the Bible “means” and who or what determines that meaning. Moreover, no on can read the Bible without possessing some purpose in reading.

This book, in practical and nontechnical terms, guides readers in discovering what the goal of reading the Bible should be and how they can achieve this goal for themselves. The author promises that they will acquire “an interpretive framework that will help them understand better the meaning of biblical texts and how to apply that meaning to their own life situation.”

Along the way, readers learn what is at stake in such issues as inspiration, inerrancy, continuing revelation, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Their study will be facilitated by exercises and discussion questions, as well as a comprehensive glossary.
