"I can do all things through Christ
who strengthens me."
"’For I know the plans I have for
you,’ declares the Lord, ’plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to
give you hope and a future.’"
"And we know that for those who love
God all things work together for good."
These and a surprising number of well-known
Scripture passages are commonly misused or misunderstood. Even well-intentioned
Christians take important verses out of context, and pastor
Eric J. Bargerhuff has seen the effects: confusion, poor decisions, and a
distorted view of God’s Word.
In this concise yet thorough book,
Bargerhuff helps all of us understand what these verses meant when they were
written so we can apply them accurately today. Providing fascinating historical
and scriptural insights, he shows how to read God’s promises and instructions
in context and appreciate even more the Bible’s eternal message.
"This is a book
that is long overdue and I gladly commend it to you."
--Tim Challies, author and pastor
