A surprising number of popular Bible stories are commonly misused or misunderstood, even by well-intentioned Christians. In The Most Misused Stories in the Bible Eric J. Bargerhuff forwards a concise yet thorough understanding of the meaning of David and Goliath, Jonah and the Big Fish, the Woman Caught in Adultery, and other well-known Bible stories.
Providing fascinating historical and scriptural insights, Bargerhuff helps readers sort through modern-day distortions of fourteen well-known Bible stories and grasp their original meaning and purpose for us today.
I mean lets admit it, the Bible is a tough book to read. So much detail, wisdom, and of course it is the WORD of GOD. So of course there may be times that we struggle with understanding it.
So Eric Bargerhuff put together this book of stories that are often misused in the Bible. In The Most Misused Stories In The Bible Bargerhuff takes stories from both the old and new testament to make his point clear.
As someone who is slightly more seasoned in the Bible I found myself wanting to dig a bit deeper than what Bargerhuff was saying. Now that being said I will tell you what really happened while reading this book.
I took it with me when I went to see my best friend (who just happens to be a pastors kid). Of course she is going to ask about what I am reading. So, I told her. Read some to her. And then….debated with her. ( I adore a good debate). And that is what I believe this book to be…. A great jumping off point for discussion.
Its so simply written that even my kids should be able to understand, but of course the topics are heavy. So please, read it, debate it, open up God’s word and prove it right or wrong. This is a great book for a family discussion.
