I was looking for a book that would teach a group of college students how to study the Bible. Good hands-on activities. This text was perfect. Well written, easy to follow, scholarly but not over the heads of my students. Wish I had found it earlier. Read full review

Review: Grasping God's Word: A Hands-On Approach to Reading, Interpreting, and Applying the Bible

User Review  - Randy Hulshizer - Goodreads

Decent introduction, but a little simplistic for a graduate-level course. Sometimes I felt like the authors were talking to the reader like a kindergarten teacher would talk to his/her students. Read full review
