Book Review: The Hermeneutics of the Biblical Writers: Learning to Interpret Scripture from the Prophets and Apostles

The Hermeneutics of the Biblical Writers: Learning to Interpret Scripture from the Prophets and ApostlesThe Hermeneutics of the Biblical Writers: Learning to Interpret Scripture from the Prophets and Apostles by Abner Chou
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an excellent book for considering how to understand the Bible as a whole book. We need to understand how the writers of Scripture read Scripture and wrote Scripture. This in turn teaches us how to read Scripture and that we are not writing Scripture. The issue of intertextuality is vital to properly understanding Scripture. I highly recommend this book.

Book Review: The Time Between the Old and New Testament

The Time Between the Old and New Testament: A Zondervan Digital ShortThe Time Between the Old and New Testament: A Zondervan Digital Short by Henry H. Halley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is a concise overview of the intertestamental period. It is an excellent summary to bridge the gap between the end of the Old Testament and the beginning of the New Testament. Many things changed during those four centuries and understanding that helps understand the setting of the Gospels and the land of Israel during the life of Jesus.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was an interesting read. Jacobs addresses many biases that keep us from really thinking. His discussion of ingroups and outgroups was insightful. He helps us see what we often think of as independent thought isn’t that at all. I liked it.
