Publisher Description:

As God's written Word to us, the Bible is the single most powerful agent for transforming our lives. All too often, however, our Bible reading becomes routine and fails to engage our hearts as well as our minds.

In Reading the Bible with Heart and Mind, Tremper Longman will help you discover the incredible power of the Scriptures to mold you into the character of Christ. "Even though the Bible is powerful," writes Longman, "we don't change just because we read it. Our minds may be engaged, but something needs to happen to our hearts as well."

If you want to rekindle your passion for God's Word, this book will help you learn to accurately read, understand, and respond to God's Word in ways that will develop deep intimacy with Christ and conform you to His image.

Dr. Tremper Longman III received an M.Div. from Westminster Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. from Yale University. He served as the Robert H. Gundry professor of biblical studies at Westmont from 1998 until he retired in 2017. He continues to serve the college as a distinguished scholar of biblical studies. Longman is the author of How to Read the Psalms, Literary Approaches to Biblical Interpretation, Introduction to the Old Testament, and coauthor, with Dan Allender, of Bold Love and Cry of the Soul.
