Description

The Key to Bible Interpretation lies in understanding the allegorical/symbolic language used in the Bible. The key to accomplishing this is diagrammed for us in Genesis 1 in the Creation Story. The Bible's purpose is to teach us about what we can't see using objects, forms, living stories, etc. related to our physical world. Since the spiritual reality is of a different nature than the physical reality we can see, allegory/symbolism is used to explain the spiritual.

This book offers a Word Picture of the Genesis 1 message that reveals just how we are in the image of GOD and then continues to use that diagram for interpretation of the rest of the Bible.

Beginning with basic axioms of the way we must view GOD, how to search for Truth, how to minimize errors in our interpretations, the book continues with describing the Word Picture in detail and offers many practical ways to use the resulting principles and truths. Here is a video briefly explaining how Man is in the Image of GOD:
