    “In All The Scriptures” is a great and helpful read on biblical hermeneutics. Around 270 pages, the book covers many topics, including:

    – What is hermeneutics and why it needs to be studied.

    – Description of the literary, historical, and christological contexts for interpreting the Bible.

    – Interpreting scripture in the postmodern world.

    – The importance of the Bible’s integrity and coherency before interpreting obscure text.

    – 5 ways to use historical context.

    – The history and story of God’s people.

    – Major recurring Bible themes.

    – Questions to ask yourself concerning biblical application.

    After reading enough of this book, this is what I like:

    – While an academic title, the book is understandable and easy to follow.

    – Well organized and addresses several relevant topics.

    – A timely book in a day and time when people are either turning away from the Bible or more show interest in the book.

    – Christ centered.

    I will read this title more deeply in the future, but know that this is a very good, relevant, and helpful read. Highly recommended. I was given a review copy by IVP in exchange for a fair review and appreciate the opportunity.
