A short history of the interpretation of the Bible
In this book, the author focuses chiefly on the New Testament and the early church, with modern revisions. However, he refrains from prophecy, and, instead, sets forth his interpretation of the basic principles of historical and theological scripture. The author further translates quotations from the Greek New Testament.
