Description

David Dockery and George Guthrie set forth the basics of interpreting, applying, and communicating the Word of God in teaching and preaching. The heart of the book is a mentoring session with Dockery and Guthrie. It’s as if they are at the table with you showing you the steps to interpretation, applying it to Philippians 2:5-11. They have summarized the steps to interpretation in a chart that will be useful every time you prepare a lesson or sermon. And, you will find helpful workbook features for hands on experience
