The Indispensable Guide to God's Word

Donald J. Brash

 The Indispensable Guide to God’s Word. Pastoral ministry is a calling and a profession with many and varied tasks, requiring faithful and dutiful attention to the Bible, whether in the setting of preaching and worship, church Bible studies, or in the classroom. Donald J. Brash guides you through this text of biblical interpretation and application that is so crucial to ministries that take seriously the call to be faithful to Christ. In the midst of the divisive intellectual and ethical issues of our time, The Indispensable Guide to God’s Word will equip you to better understand how world views inform theologies of Scripture. Also you will be challenged to strengthen your own interpreting of God's Word for your life.

ABOUT THE SERIES The Indispensable Guide Series offers tightly focused, relatively brief, accessible, and practical books for students in seminary, multiple paths to ministry groups, and lay ministry programs. Each book introduces core concepts, provides ample illustrations, and includes a helpful resource list.
