George H. Guthrie | B&H Books
In Read the Bible for
Life: Your Guide to Understanding & Living God’s Word, Union University
Bible professor George H. Guthrie converses with 17 down-to-earth Bible
scholars, including authors Darrell Bock, Michael Card and Andreas
Kostenberger. The reader seeking to understand the Old Testament prophets can
flip to Guthrie’s conversation with professor Gary V. Smith, while the reader
confused about how to responsibly and fruitfully apply the Bible to life can
turn to Guthrie’s humorous—yet profound—conversation with himself on “Reading
the Bible for Transformation.”
Deciding on this book’s greatest value is difficult. On the
one hand, Guthrie’s style allows the reader to feel as if he or she is actually
sitting in on a casual conversation between the author and the experts. On the
other, the content presented is as relevant as it is comprehensive. Guthrie
boils down the most significant, or most troubling, issues related to the given
topic, making them accessible to the ordinary Christian.
Part of the “Read the Bible for Life” initiative, Read
the Bible for Life aims to improve biblical literacy in the church, helping
readers see the larger context of every person or teaching in the Scriptures.
