Revised and updated fourth edition.
A Proven Approach to Help You Interpret and Understand the Bible

Grasping God's Word has proven itself in classrooms across the country as an invaluable help to students who want to learn how to read, interpret, and apply the Bible for themselves. This book will equip you with a five-step Interpretive Journey that will help you make sense of any passage in the Bible. It will also guide you through all the different genres found in the Bible to help you learn the specifics of how to best approach each one.

Hands-on exercises to guide students through the interpretation process
Emphasis on real-life application
Supplemented by a website for professors providing extensive teaching materials
Accompanying workbook, video lectures, laminated study guide (sold separately)
