I just finished this book. The book is a guide to biblical interpretation. I think it is one of the finest works done on the area of interpretation and application. Russell champions a historical-grammatical interpretation of Scripture. He is consistent throughout the book in emphasizing this hermeneutical method. Russell also addresses some areas that evangelicals have neglected in years past. He strives to persuade readers to take genre and the occasional nature of the Scripture into account when interpreting. I would highly recommend this book to any believer who would like a better understanding of God’s Word and a closer walk with God. If I were teaching an introductory Bible class this would be one of the required text books.
