Disciples of Jesus spend a massive amount of time learning from the Bible. Yet what is the Bible? Why do Christians take it so seriously? What tools can we use to understand this ancient collection of historical writings, letters, poems, and more? God’s Word cuts through the confusion with straightforward explanations and practical tools. Orpheus J. Heyward teaches the major sections of the Bible, how we received the Bible, how to interpret it accurately, and why we should view it as our final authority. This book invites you to explore the world’s most important book with the clarity to understand and the courage to follow.
