Kregel Academic - 286 páginas

Serious study of the Bible can be a daunting task for any Christian. The desire to explore God's Word is the beginning of the process. Bible explorers also need the proper tools and an experienced guide to lead the adventure through the Scriptures.

There is no better guide for this exploration than one who has spent his life leading people at every level of training on journeys into the wonders of Scripture. John Phillips provides the proper tools as well as the wise, sensible guidance to help any believer dig into the Scriptures and search out their meaning and significance.

In the Bible Explorer's Guide, Dr. Phillips provides the ground rules for handling God's Word--including the "Golden Rule" for studying Scripture; symbols in the Bible's discussion of covenants and dispensations; and interpreting types, parables, and prophecy. It also offers practical "maps" and resources to aid in a discovery study--a survey of Scripture, a harmony of the Gospels, and summaries of Bible history and names.

If you are looking for a serious but understandable guide to studying the Bible, look no further. The Bible Explorer's Guide is your handbook.

John Phillips served as assistant director of the Moody Correspondence School as well as director of the Emmaus Correspondence School, one of the world's largest Bible correspondence ministries. He also taught in the Moody Evening School and on the Moody Broadcasting radio network.
