He also covers the spectrum of Christian doctrine, succinctly drawing meaning from the Bible independent of denominational traditions.
The Bible is the most important book in history. It’s also one of the most misunderstood. Studying Scripture involves much more than reading. Serious Bible study can be a daunting task. It takes effort and skill.

Brief Insights on Mastering the Bible presents readers with a straightforward but audacious proposition: Grasping these insights will mean comprehending Scripture more clearly than you ever have before. You don’t need to time travel to understand Scripture, but you do need directions.
