This is a very god book if we really want to know how we should read the bible by staying on the right track. Interpretation is vey important and it will define our basis for our faith. We really need to understand that we just cannot read the bible just as any other books and interpret the text on the go..
I am on page 84 and these guys are Theologians on Steroids, this book is intense and technical and if I wasn't in Seminary probably would not read it. Having said that there are so good stuff in it.
