NOOK Book (eBook - New Edition)


Enjoy these SAMPLE pages from Context-

instructions, poetry, prophecy, apocalypse, sermons, and all of it written thousands
of years ago - the Bible is a complex book that can be difficult to navigate. One
of the hardest things for a reader is to figure out how to read  different sections
of Scripture the way they're supposed to be read and then to figure out how
they all fit together. Pastor Jim Nicodem has written a wonderful, accessible resource
to help with these challenges.

Context explains four different aspects
of the Bible that readers need to understand in order to be able to understand the
Bible as a whole. In these pages, Nicodem takes the reader through the history,
literature, theology, and how we should see this ancient book through modern eyes.
In short, he gives the context needed to read the Bible well.

Perfect for
believers at any stage and those seeking to teach the Bible well, this book is a
wonderful tool to help with basic Bible reading or more in-depth study.

Meet the Author

JIM NICODEM has been the senior pastor of Christ Community Church
since its start in 1984. Beginning with a group of six families, the church has
grown to over five thousand people at four campuses. A significant focus on reaching
spiritual seekers has resulted in scores of new believers being baptized each year.Born
and raised in the Midwest, Jim did his schooling in Biblical studies (BA/Wheaton
College; MDiv, DMin/Trinity Evangelical Divinity School). In keeping with Christ
Community Church's mission to make passionate disciples of Jesus Christ, Jim loves
to mentor others in prayer and the study of God's Word. With that goal in mind,
he has authored Prayer Coach: For All Who Want to Get Off the Bench and Onto the
Praying Field (2008) and the four-book Bible Savvy series (2013).Jim and his wife,
Sue, have been married for more than thirty years and have three grown children.
Jim enjoys biking, hiking and kayaking for recreation. He loves to hang out in Chicago,
where he can watch the Cubs play (no better park than Wrigley) or listen to the
world-class Symphony Orchestra. The local Starbucks also sees a lot of Jim, accompanied
by books (mostly biographies) or friends.
