We live in a culture that is biblically illiterate for the most part. I recently spoke to a friend who lamented that many people have never heard of Jonah?

My initial response was, “Who?” After a hearty chuckle, the tone turned serious as scores of biblical haven’t the slightest clue about the character of the Bible, let alone the plotline of Redemptive history.

The Word Explored sets out to offer practical solutions for the problem of biblical illiteracy.

The book is light on diagnosis but places a heavy emphasis on prescription. Jenkins’ prescription includes an urgent appeal to hear, read, study, memorize, and meditate on the Word of God.

One of the great appeals of The Word Explored is the emphasis on application. Jenkins makes it clear that Bible input is critical but without practical application, all efforts fall flat. The author includes personal examples of how Scripture has impacted his life and enables him to worship the Lord Jesus Christ in spirit and truth.

This is an ideal book for new Christians but is also a powerful encouragement for seasoned believers as well. I commend this excellent book and trust that it will receive a wide reading for the good of the church and the glory of God!

Hi! I’m David Steele. I spend most of my time with my family and preparing to preach and teach God’s Word. In my spare time, I’m generally cranking out miles on my road bike, working out on the treadmill, or playing tennis or golf. I earned my BS and MA degrees from Multnomah University and Multnomah Biblical Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry from Bakke Graduate University in Seattle, Washington. I serve as senior pastor at Christ Fellowship in Everson, Washington and spend a fair amount of time reading the dead guys like Jonathan Edwards, John Owen, John Bunyan, Martin Luther, J.C. Ryle, Charles Spurgeon, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, and Francis Schaeffer. I also enjoy reading current authors like John Piper, John Frame, Bruce Ware, Steven Lawson, and N.D. Wilson.
