I've been preaching and teaching this for years, but without the official language or theological language. Almost got a 5 star, but alas....
Fantastic and exciting book. I loved the clear hermeneutical principles in it. This book has deepened both my understanding of scripture and my ability to actually teach it. Excellent and freeing book that is well worth the read.
