When you read the Bible, do you sometimes wish you had a tutor by your side to shed light on certain passages? Do you enjoy devotionals but wish they delved deeper into Scripture? Would you like to build your collection of bible study aids but aren’t sure where to start?
Then Keri Wyatt Kent’s book, Deeper Into The Word, New Testament, might be the perfect choice for you!
This book provides insight into the meanings of 100 key words in the New Testament, based on the original languages and their historical and cultural context. The author also demonstrates how we can more aptly apply those words to our lives once we understand the full meaning behind the words.
For example, when Keri discusses the word Afraid, she shows how it relates to Fear, how both terms are used in the New Testament, and how God wants us to respond when we are afraid or fearful. When Keri discusses Fellowship, she correlates it to Community and discusses how true fellowship means more than partaking in social hour over Sunday morning pancakes.
I learned a lot while reading this book and found myself reflecting on the words even after I finished reading about them. I found the book enjoyable, and commend the author for not only providing readers with a peek into the history of Scripture, but for doing so in a fresh and relevant way.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in deepening their understanding of Scripture.
