The Volume of the Book:
Insights into Rightly Dividing The Word of Truth

Tag: This is an educational, inspirational and empowering book for all Christians
This is a book that is educational, inspirational and empowering for all Christians. It is a book that will force you to rethink how you view the Bible—one of the most magnificent books in the world.
According to Butler, the Bible is not studied in a way that we can understand fully. Instead, the Bible is typically studied book by book. When we read the Bible in this way, we treat the Bible as if it were a recipe. This truncated view of the Bible takes away from a complete and in-depth understanding of the Bible.
Instead, we should study the Bible holistically. The purpose of
Butler’s book is to facilitate in this journey towards a better understanding of the Scriptures by viewing the Bible from a holistic point of view. The books of the Bible are not separate entities. Instead, the Bible is written by one author and it has one plan and objective. The Bible, therefore, has only one eternal purpose that of having sons that manifest the Father’s glory and the establishment of the kingdom of God. One of the aims of Butler’s book is to provide some insight into that purpose, coupled with the principles of rightly dividing the word of God.
However, since most of us grew up reading the Bible in this truncated book by book fashion, we will have to set aside the things that we have carried with us all our lives and open our minds and hearts to a new and more enriching way of understanding the Bible. Butler’s book will provoke and inspire you to read the Scriptures and in the process to get more and more understanding of them.
I find Butler’s book transforming and as a Christian it has propelled me to start re-reading the Bible with a new set of eyes and with a heart that is willing to understand the Bible in more depth.
