Good Advice

“The key to good exegesis, and therefore to a more intelligent reading of the Bible, is to learn to read the text carefully and to ask the right questions of the text. One of the best things one could do in that regard would be to read Mortimer J. Adler’s How to Read a Book (1940, revised edition) with Charles Van Doren [New York: Simon and Schuster, 1972]).”

Gordon D. Fee and Douglas Stuart, How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth, 3rd ed. (Grand Rapids: Academie Books, 2003), 26.
