Really good book, very informative liked it a lot!
Main takeaway which can also be used for other essay subjects is:
• First word is exegesis - this means understanding the context of when the particular chapter or verse was written, and the writer's intentions
• Then the next word is hermeneutics - this means interpreting the information you have gathered from exegesis and then changing this to our world now

Growing up in church and then going on to study Theology at university, this was like coming back to the basics for me. But I think we all need to return to the basic fundamental principles of God and the Bible sometimes in order to better understand how it relates to us today, and Peter achieved this very well throughout.

I think there are two take home points from this book: 1) Exegesis (studying the Bible to work out its original context and the intentions of those who wrote it) and 2) Hermen
