God said it. I believe it. That settles it for me! The spirit with which someone might make that statement is often right on target. When we know God's will on a particular issue, no human reason can or should change your mind. Yet not every issue is that clear cut. The average Christian is awash in conflicting ideas about what the Bible means. Many people feel inadequate to pick up a Bible, read, and understand it for themselves. Kenneth Schenck's Making Sense of God's Word offers practical help for the average Christian who wants to read God s Word and understand it. Helping the reader sort through the issues of context, genre, and theories of interpretation, Schenck gives practical principles that restore confidence in reading and interpreting Scripture. After reading this simple, practical guide, readers will feel confident that they can hear God s Word for themselves.
