Tools for Understanding God’s Word
When it comes to reading and understanding the Bible, a dangerous phrase is used by non-Christians and even some believers: “Well, that’s your interpretation.” It is true that without some care in your interpretation, you can “make” the Bible say almost anything. Dig Deeper is written out of the conviction that there is a right way to understand the Bible and a wrong way, and the authors show us how to read it correctly.
Here’s a book that offers sixteen “tools” readers can use to get to the bottom of any Bible passage and discover its intended meaning. Examples show how each tool helps readers discover something exciting and relevant in a passage, and the Dig Deeper exercises offer the opportunity to practice using the tools. The book’s brevity and easy-to-read format make it ideal for Christians who want to get the most out of their Bible.
“Nigel and Andrew have written a great work on knowing God better, learning his will for your life, and reading your Bible. I like it. In fact, I think we’ll start using it at our church.”
— Mark Dever, Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington DC and President of 9Marks
“At last the book we have been waiting for, a modest-sized volume that lays out the cardinal principles of biblical exposition in clear, accessible, winsome language. I keep a stash of Dig Deeper in my office for gifts to aspiring preachers as well as to refresh my own preaching. A quickening read for all expositors and teachers of the Word!”
— Kent Hughes, Senior Pastor Emeritus, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois
