It’s for you, it’s alive — read it! The Bible is not a battlefield but the pathway into life. It is important that we never look at the Bible simply as a book to be attacked or defended. For this reason, the last book in the series is entitled Enjoy your Bible! The best way to read our Bible, how to understand it with sound common sense, and how we can read it in its historical context will encourage us to spend more time with God and his word each day. The Psalmist wrote, I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts... Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path (Psalm 119:45, 105). All Christians must surely acknowledge the value of the Bible as God’s word for every part of life. In Book 1 of this series the Master plan of the Bible is outlined — how the books all fit together towards one great theme which is Jesus Christ the rescuer from sin. Book 2 emphasizes the importance of biblical authority and what is meant by the ‘sufficiency’ of Scripture. From there, the series unfolds the story of our English Bible, how we can be sure that we have the right text, how to choose a translation, and some of the best evidence for trusting its accuracy so that our commitment to Biblical inerrancy is unashamedly sense as well as faith.
