Misused Stories

Surprising Ways Popular Bible Stories Are Misunderstood
By Eric J. Bargerhuff
The author take 14 stories from the Bible and shows how sometimes these stories are misinterpreted, he give an interpretation that he feels is the right one. His version is a common-sense interpretation not one that is being used to get a view point across. Eric feels that God has a meaning for the story and offers, what he thinks is the meaning is. He covers stories of David and Goliath, Zacchaeus among others. Areas that the author touch upon are, the context of the story, understanding the meaning, not to read modern day biases into the story, reading into the stories at is not there and other things that cause misunderstanding.
I want to share a quote from the back of the book; “Filled with fascinating historical and spiritual insights, this concise yet thorough book will help you learn how to read and apply all of God’s Word more faithfully.”
I like and think we need books like this to help protect us from some of the false teachers and their confusing methods.
I received this book free from Bethany House Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255
