Ready to go deep into God’s word?
Deeper Into the Word is a very thorough, yet accessible, tool to look closely at the Scriptures and see what they mean – both to the original audience and for us today.


Keri Wyatt Kent examines 100 words used in the New Testament, giving insight into each word’s definition and usage in the original language, the cultural context of the time, and what it means for believers today. Each description is about two pages long. Reading this book was a bit like participating in a seminary lecture; while some portions were a bit technical, it opened up a deeper understanding to familiar passages of the Bible and gave them a richer meaning. Like a good professor, Kent mixed together personal insights with research, as in the chapter on sacrifice where she writes, “Jesus was, to put it in our vernacular, talking smack to the Pharisees.”
This book would be useful to students or any one in ministry. It is probably best adapted to ordinary students of the Bible who want to enhance their understanding. It can be used as a reference tool or read through from beginning to end.
I received a copy of this book from Bethany House for review. You can buy it for your Kindle for $9.99.
