From the Introduction by Dr. Timothy J. Geddert:
This book is about the adventure of learning new things in our study of the Bible. It is not so much a book of method as a book of examples. But from beginning to end, it’s my aim to help readers reflect on what opens up the message of Scripture for the curious reader. And from beginning to end, I also aim to help readers discover that new insights are a wonderful blessing: sometimes they bring new truths to light that would otherwise remain hidden from us; sometimes they solve a puzzle in a text that has genuinely bother us; sometimes they help us understand why our experiences do not match what we thought a text was teaching.
