The way many Christians read the Bible actually prevents them from hearing all that God wants to say to them. By falling back on past assumptions and preconceptions about the Scripture and relying on routine interpretive methods, believers often fail to find the deeper layers of meaning for their lives.
But in his new book, "Epiphany," pastor and Bible teacher Chuck Smith, jr., opens readers' eyes and ears to receive fresh, life-changing meaning from God's Word. The Bible is divinely inspired-it is living and active. It possesses multiple layers of meaning and deeper applications. And readers miss all of that if they limit their Bible study time to the same rote approach.
To counteract this malaise, Smith demonstrates a variety of cutting-edge approaches to studying the Scriptures. These include looking within, around, and through the text, paying attention to types of literature, noticing narrative details, discovering the historical background and cultural realities, being aware of one's own reactions to the text, and more. Readers will learn new ways to hear God. And the end result will be a richer understanding of the Word and a life-changing encounter with God.
