'Correctly handle the word of truth,' says 2 Timothy 2: 15. Using these 'tools' will enable you to get to the bottom of many Bible passages and help you to discover their true meaning


This is a toolbox. Sorry if this conjures up painful memories of failed DIY projects, hours spent waiting for the emergency services on the hard shoulder of the motorway, or rusty, forgotten implements decked with cobwebs at the back of your garden shed.



But there are no spanners or trowels here. These tools are rather a means of getting to the bottom of any Bible passage and discovering its true meaning.



Listening to God speak to us through the Bible is like picking up a telephone and hearing your Creator at the other end of the line. It should be exciting, life-changing even. But sometimes it seems more like a long-distance call, with static on the line, and it's hard to make out what our Father is saying. Maybe our own interpretation is such guesswork that we're in danger of putting words into God's mouth.



The passionate aim of this book is that it should help you to 'correctly handle the word of truth' (2 Timothy 2:15) so that you will experience God's clear guidance in your life, come to know him better and grow to love him more. Our prayer is that your Bible reading will never be the same again.

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. Dig Deeper 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.

Customer Reviews For "Dig Deeper: Tools to Unearth the Bible's Treasure"

Write Your Own Review
Short, useful introduction to reading the Bible
4 stars By Hoa, Jul 04 2016
In this short book, the authors effectively lay out the key building blocks for studying the Bible accurately and more deeply. They teach skills for studying sentences, such as repetition, parallels and conjunctions. Due to the scope of this work, other topics such as genre are mentioned, but not explained in much detail. However, the strength of this book is its brevity. It would work as a good introduction for those who are getting started in deeper Bible study, though students will want to move on to more detailed guides afterwards.
