Deeper into the Word {New Testament} by Keri Wyatt Kent

Book Description: A fresh look at the words within the Word. Words matter. God cares about them and so should we. Going a little deeper into the Bible's words can make an old passage new again, enriching your understanding of God's message to his children. Why was this word chosen rather than that one? What does it imply in its original language that you can't see in English? And without knowing Greek, how can you learn to explore the details of God's Word for yourself? Keri Wyatt Kent provides a fresh encounter with the most important words of the New Testament. 

My Review:  A great resource for delving deeper into the meanings of the New Testament.  Kerri Wyatt Kent clearly presents 100 words from the New Testament that will help to deepen the readers understanding of biblical passages.  The words are listed alphabetically with insightful entries.  Also included is an appendix of helpful websites for those who wish to dig deeper, as well as an alphabetical index to the Greek words, together with the page(s) on which they are found in this book.
One does not have to be a theologian to dig deeper into God's Word.  This book is not a controversial study; instead, Keri gently leads the reader and provides insights into relevant texts during each word study.  Deeper into the Word is an encouragement to all readers who seek to glean more from God's Word.
I like the "readability" of this book.  Also, the definitions of Greek words help to give clarity to the scripture.  Keri also points out that the most important Bible study tool is prayer.  The entries are short but packed with knowledge and meaningful application.
This is a great companion to Bible and it is also a great asset for your personal library or church library.  
This is one of those 5 star reads that needs to be used/read over and over again!  This book would make a great gift for that high schooler/college student or for anyone who is studying the New Testament.

  1. Tammy, thank you for this review. I'm constantly looking up the meaning of some word that's in my Bible so this will be an asset to me as the source I'm using now is limited. I do have other sources, but they aren't as convenient and in my busy world I need convenient.

    I know I've said this before, but I'm so thankful for your blog that directs me to good and helpful books.
