Pulling the Sword from the Stone

As a pastor there is one desire I hear far more often than any other from Christians both new and old alike, ” How can I learn to read and understand the Bible better?”  We as a people have a LOT of ground to recover in this regard especially when it comes to our familiarity with the Scriptures, our understanding of literary genres, and our ability to think clearly and deeply.  But I know of no better person to get us started than J.I. Packer.  Here is a great article taken from the ESV Study Bible that should get you on the right track.  If you’ve got a big sword, you might as well learn how to use it.
