Understanding Scripture: An Adventist Approach, vol. 1

The method we use in the interpretation of Scripture is crucial for a correct understanding of God’s Word. Unfortunately, postmodern trends in the Christian church have largely led to the abandonment of the idea that in Scripture God is still speaking to us. But in order to hear God correctly, we need to apply proper methods in the interpretation of his Word. Understanding Scripture seeks to uncover methods of interpretation that arise from the Scriptures themselves and are in harmony with the Adventist high view of the Bible as the Word of God.

George W. Reid was director of the Biblical Research Institute (BRI) from 1984 to 2001. Among his many books are Seventh-day Adventists and Life Insurance and Another Look at Adventist Hermeneutics.

The method we use in the interpretation of Scripture is crucial for a correct understanding of God’s Word. Unfortunately, postmodern trends in the Christian church have largely led to the abandonment of the idea that in Scripture God is still speaking to us. But in order to hear God correctly, we need to apply proper methods in the interpretation of his Word. Interpreting Scripture applies these methods to more than 90 difficult Bible texts. In addition it addresses a number of questions concerning the Bible, such as “Who wrote the Bible?” “Are there mistakes in the Bible?” and “Why do Christian scholars interpret Scripture in so many different ways?”

Gerhard Pfandl is a retired associate director of the Biblical Research Institute (BRI). He specializes in the Book of Daniel, end-time events, and Ellen G. White. He has written several books, including Daniel: The Seer of Babylon, Ellen G. White and Earth Science, and Some Thoughts on Original Sin.
