From the popular culture’s perspective, reading the Bible “literally” is something that only naïve, uneducated Christians do because they lack awareness of current scientific interpretations of our world, or cannot accept 21st-century social sensibilities. However, this aspersion itself lacks understanding of what it means to read the Bible – or any other work – literally.

This guide will not only clarify what it means to read the Bible literally, but will also lead you through examples of biblical passages that have been misread (some famously) and explain what has gone wrong with the interpretation. You will learn five tools for how to read the Bible accurately, including understanding how to recognize figures of speech, how to be aware of context, and how doctrinal considerations apply.

Review by JW
This is a good guide to reading your Bible. It helps with understanding figures of speech. I really liked the section on questions to ask while reading your Bible. It helps to know how to study while reading. I would recommend this book to anyone questioning how to take the bible literal while at the same time realizing there are figures of speech in it.
Powerful read on how to READ your BIBLE
Review by Christina
How do you read your Bible?
Many different people have different ideas as to what different passages mean. Bill Foster digs in and encourages you to read "Literally" which means "as the author intended".
Complete with diagrams and well written explanations, this book goes into detail on how we can read the Bible. Asking ourselves 5 key questions we can find the meaning God (the author) intended that would be universal for all time and see how we can apply it to our lives today.
A great book to help you dig deep into your Bible and understand passage that may otherwise seem difficult to grasp.
An encouragement to know how to read and understand the Bible for yourself
Review by Holly
A good guide for reading and understanding the Bible. The importance of reading in context and the different areas of the Bible. Law, History, Poetry , etc. Good for those unfamiliar with the Bible as well as those who have grown up with it. An encouragement to know how to read and understand the Word for yourself. Don't just believe what you hear, find out if it lines up with the Word of God.
