Bishop Joey Johnson Releases New Book to Help Readers See the Bible Through Its Cultural Context (October 2011)

thebiblicalworldthroughnewglassescover.jpgII Timothy 2:15 urges Christians to, “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” In a world that is filled with secular ideas about God, the Bible, and the Christian faith, many people are looking for a solid source of truth. They are looking for a truth that they can depend on and that can reach them right where they are. In the pages of his newest book, The Biblical World Through New Glasses, Bishop Joey Johnson seeks to help readers understand the truth of the Bible through its cultural context. 

In The Biblical World Through New Glasses, Bishop Joey Johnson shows the ordinary Bible reader how they can understand the culture of the first-century New Testament era and enrich their understanding of the whole Bible. Readers will uncover a new way of looking at Scripture, which will lead them to a more complete perspective on the culture in which Jesus Christ was born, lived, died, buried and rose again.
