Making sense of [the Bible] on your own can be intimidating. . . . This book brilliantly offers key, direct questions to experience the life, complexity, and beauty held in God’s Word with the integrity and humanity that the text demands. In asking these ten questions of the Scriptures and of ourselves, we’ll never run out of depth in answering the question “Who are You, Lord?” Shelly Schwalm, university ministry associate at Concordia University, St. Paul

Andrew offers us something incredibly beautiful and hopeful in his book. . . . He guides us with wonderfully crafted questions that invite us to go deeper with God’s Word and live out our hope in Christ with a renewed spirit. Tanner Olson, author, poet, and speaker

We live in a time of soundbites, summaries, and short-form content. While there are advantages to this style of communication, it also brings with it weakness. We rarely ask questions about origin, context, or accurate application. . . . Andrew Jones tactfully teaches readers how to properly engage the Bible so as to rightly be acquainted with the words of life. Marcus “FLAME” Gray, Grammy-nominated Christian rap artist and Concordia Seminary graduate
