How to Study Difficult Passages of The Bible

In this book, Stephen Rogers gives the reader is given principles to assist him to interpret Biblical Truth. He is challenged to learn how to think critically for himself. Using the illustration of a tool box and tools, Rogers urges students to open up their interpretation tool box and use the correct tools to tackle and solve difficult passages.
Then twelve difficult passages are addressed.
