Robert L. Plummer tackles major questions students, pastors, and laypeople ask about reading and understanding the Bible. Plummer divides his work into four parts: getting started, approaching the Bible, approaching specific texts, and issues in recent discussion. The accessible format allows teachers to utilize this book as a textbook, and the curious student to understand the issues which are most pertinent to their study. This volume is essential reading for any student in biblical studies, as well as pastors looking to teach the Bible with confidence.

Read this excellent primer and read the Bible better as a result.

Aristotle once said that those who wished to succeed must ask the right preliminary questions. Plummer asks 40 of them. Even better: he answers them, providing beginning students with all they need to know about biblical interpretation in general and the specific kinds of texts found in the Old and New Testaments in particular.

Kevin Vanhoozer, research professor of systematic theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

How appropriate that Plummer’s 40 Questions about Interpreting the Bible is itself eminently understandable, crystal clear, and thoroughly engaging. The organization and breadth of coverage make this book both a delight to read and highly instructive. . . . I can’t imagine a more helpful introduction to the subject of biblical interpretation.

40 Questions about the End Times

Biblical, and broadly accessible, Eckhard J. Schnabel makes sense of one of the Bible’s most difficult topics. Schnabel answers common questions about the return of Christ, the millennium, the final judgment, the rapture, heaven, hell, and the future of the world. Schnabel carefully studies the biblical text in light of its first-century context. The result is an even-handed treatment that avoids sensationalism.

Eckhard Schnabel is professor of New Testament at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Schnabel is also the author of Early Christian Mission and Paul the Missionary: Realities, Strategies and Methods.
