Quick Overview:

Understanding the Bible correctly and rightly relating its meaning to life require using the right approach and tools to dig deeper into Scripture. This popular text---Grasping God’s Word by Old Testament scholar J. Daniel Hays and New Testament expert J. Scott Duvall, now revised and updated---is an indispensable guide to reading, interpreting, and applying the Bible that teaches students how to read the Word of God carefully and in context.

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. The third edition, revised based on feedback from professors, will continue to serve college-level students and lay learners well in their quest to gain a firm grasp on the rock of God’s word. Old Testament scholar J. Daniel Hays and New Testament expert J. Scott Duvall provide practical, hands-on exercises to guide students through the interpretive process. To emphasize the Bible’s redemptive arc and encourage correlation across the canon, the authors have included a call to “cross into the rest of Scripture” as an additional step in the Interpretive Journey. This edition has also been rearranged for clarity and includes updated illustrations, appendices, bibliography, and assignments. A website for professors offers extensive teaching materials, and an accompanying revised workbook (Grasping God’s Word Workbook---sold separately) gives students additional practice in reading and interpreting the Bible.
