By exploring the historical, theological and social context in which a number of selected Bible words are found, the author brings to life the meaning of these words for the ordinary reader, thus providing a useful aid to biblical interpretation. The thirty-one studies are a combination of both Hebrew and Greek words, and facilitate a daily intake of spiritual thought that will both edify and challenge the reader.
