Understand what God is saying in His Word
‘Bible’ is a word that literally means ‘library of books’. But it is a library with a unity of message that makes it unlike any other book collection. In one sense there is only one author – God Himself. But in human terms, the Bible has many authors, each of whom adopted a different style of writing known as a genre. Understanding these genres can help us to better understand what God is saying through His writers.
In these studies:
- Explore seven of the major genres of literature used by writers of the Bible: law, narrative, psalm, prophecy, gospel, epistle and apocalyptic writing
- Consider a wide range of Bible passages that demonstrate the focal style
- Reflect on what God is saying to you personally through His Word.
Icebreakers, Bible readings, eye openers, discussion starters, personal application make this a rich resource for group or individual study.
