This model for biblical interpretation was developed by Andrew Reid and has been used around the world to train lay people, preachers, and theological college students. It prepares you to tackle any Bible passage for a variety of purposes, including personal Bible reading, preparing Bible studies, sermon preparation and expository talks. If you desire to improve your handling of the word of God and learn more about how it fits into God’s purposes in Jesus, this is a great introduction.
