Very good book but hard to understand

This is a very good book with great information, but if you're not a theologian, or very advanced in your biblical verbiage, it's very hard to understand.

Brilliant and Well Spoken

I am an Apostolic Christian, Brother Bernards book was very deep and informative. He is extremely knowledgeable and helps believers put the word, facts, history and multiple paradigms of scripture in order. His books are often hard to follow if read physically with the eye; Audio book form is highly recommended.

A thorough framework for biblical interpretation

To say this text is logical is an understatement! In a time when most books attempt to offer a particular brand of biblical interpretation through the lens of doctrine, the book lays out a framework for analysis that guides the student to an understanding of the biblical text without allowing for preconceptions or imposed thoughts. Very good reference.

Yet another fantastic book by David K Bernard!

Mr. Bernard’s books are always so well thought out and expressed. He is by far one of my favorite writers, especially in dealing with the oneness of God. I have read most of his books and the ones that I have not read I plan to.

** MUST READ **

This book is phenomenal! I encourage ALL believers, especially teachers/preachers to read this book for a greater understanding in regards to interpreting God's Word. This is a game changer. My personal summary is simply this... we should NEVER use God's word as a platform to express our OWN doctrines and/or ideas.
