Insightful

The book was referencing to several parts that only apply to a hard copy version. Looks like we missed those out in the audible version.

Recipe on how to read the Holy Bible

As you read this book, you are going to have a lot of things and ideas that may challenge your belief system. Don’t worry about it! Read the book as a whole and then use it as reference guide to the parts addressed.

It is a recipe to avoid misinterpretation of the Holy Bible. As often, you will hear things in church that doesn’t sound right. Now in a group, I cringe inside when it is used absolutely wrong! It will open your eyes!!! Keep your eyes on Jesus and let everything else go!

Fix

They need to fix the table of contents. On audible chapter 1 is actually the introduction and chapter two is actually chapter one. Super confusing.

Would prefer hard copy

Excellent book. Would prefer hard copy due to amount of scripture references (numbers) read aloud.

Excellent with a few question marks

This book was a good intro or review for hermeneutics. There is a lot here that lays the foundation for what the discipline is and the authors make a point to always dig into what the authorial intent was.
I did have a few places where I scratched my head concerning their conclusions or recommendations for reading the Psalms. I agree that the Psalms or poetry are lyrical and have emotive language, but there were times that they seemed to dissuade people from deriving theological concepts from these passages, which I would question. (“Surely, I was sinful at birth.”)
I recommend for quick reminders or reference. There are probably other books that have delve deeper into the concepts.

learning how to read the bible the right way

The authors do a good job inteachingthe principles of hermeneutics and exegesis. More churches, pastors, and bible teachers need to use this information. I they did maybe the church would not be so messed up today. There are some areas that bible students would disagree with and the authors make the reader aware of those areas. Revelation being one such area. I had used the videos and books in MY classes, the audio version was for my personal use. It was of great use and I'm glad they made it. I look forward to listening to more.
