Christians around the world hold the Bible as their sacred text. They study it for knowledge, for devotion, for relationship, for understanding orthodoxy and orthopraxy. The Bible tells is the ultimate standard for living. From it we gain our deepest hopes and our basis for ethical and moral decisions on life and how to interact with the world around us.
In The Dance Between God And Humanity, we find a compilation of 31 articles by professor Bruce Waltke on how to gain the most knowledge and understanding from studying scripture. This book reads more to the academically minded than to the lay person, but the content within is rich with depth and practical teaching. It’s a great read for diving deeper and making the most of ones personal study of Scripture.
