I am a former student of Ray. The impact his approach to understanding the Bible has had on me CANNOT BE OVERSTATED.
I literally use the tools he taught every time I read the Bible. I am now a Pastor and teach a class on How to Study the Bible. This book is invaluable!

Reading this book was, truly, a revelation. I have never read a book on biblical interpretation that was so accessible, or one that proposed such an easy, effective method. Lubeck's 4 step method of "seeing", "understanding", "sharing", and "responding" not only respects the author's intentions while still drawing out life impacting truth, it all the while remains simple, reliable, and easy to remember. I looked forward to having this book on my shelf for many years and using it as a reference. BUT... I was assigned this book for a class, and along with myself, 4 others in my class ordered this book from Amazon, and every single one of our copies is falling apart at the binding. I am not talking a little bit of separation, I am talking about large chunks (whole chapters and sections) of the book are simply falling out. I am not hard on my books, in fact, others will tell you I am a little OCD about caring for my books. When my classmates' books started falling apart I chalked it up to negligence, but now that mine is falling apart as well, for no apparent reason, I count it poor craftsmanship. The quality of the materials has no bearing upon the content (which is fantastic) but I would recommend purchasing an eBook if available.

I found "Read the Bible for a Change" to give a clearer insight to understanding the Bible in these
times of unrest, confusion and a lack of Bible teaching in the worldwide church. Dr. Lubeck's style allows the individual to take a serious look at their personal Bible reading "technique" and draw from it a new relationship with God. It is written in a vary understandable style with clear applications to one's everyday life. Get it now!Read the Bible for a Change: A Follower's Guide to Reading and Responding to the Bible

As a student of Multnomah (currently in one of Dr. Lubeck's Bible study courses) I must admit I am somewhat partial to him. That being said, this is an excellent book that stands on its own as an introductory guide to methods of Biblical interpretation.

Perhaps one of the strongest points of the book is its heavy involvement with concrete examples of application to the principles outlined in the chapters, something which other books on hermeneutics often leave to the abstract. Further, Lubeck is truly a BIBLICAL scholar, who, while not afraid to interact with other theories, is quite tenacious to never leave the reader without ample scripture to chew on as a basis of his thought. This is seems to be the obverse of many current trends of hermenuetic, which simply assume socio-critical or philosophical systems of inquiry (structuralism, post-structuralism, deconstructionism, feminism, reconstructionism, anglo-american post-modernity, all the forms of existential hermeneutics...) and seem to build their christian framework with a decidedly secular foundation.

This is not to say, of course, that all post-modern and/or modern theories need be rejected, for their are many useful ideas and theories that can be conversed with and adapted (rather than simply adopted) to aid in the understanding of the bible. This is one area that I found wanting in Dr. Lubecks book (though this deficit is not Dr. Lubecks fault, as this book was never inteded as a philosophical conversation with dominant post-modern themes) especially because I know Dr. Lubeck is very knowledgable on the topic. That said however, Dr. Lubeck does interact with several notables including Lindbeck, MacIntyre, Fish, and some of my favorite theologians in the area of hermenuetics Grant Osborn (author of the Hermeneutical Spiral) and Kevin Vanhoozer (most recently the author of The Drama of Doctrine)

Also, I was somewhat dissapointed that (being a Greek Major)that there were little to no references to the original languages. While I understand that this is an introductory text, which Dr. Lubeck was making accessible to everyone, I feel that their could have been some emphasis on fallacies or incorrect utilization of lexicons (for those unfamiliar with the languages) e.g. Barr's illigitmate totality transfer (the idea that all the various definitions of a word could be present in one instantiation) or, perhaps more commonly amongst evangelical circles, the root fallacy where we are led to beleive that the etymology of a word will give us the definition simply by "adding up" every combination of prefix or suffix (for example, the word ekballw means "to cast out," which is simple to deduce because it is a combo of "ek" which means "out," and the verb "ballw," which means "I Throw," but the word ekballw can also mean "to set down," which cannot be inferred from its two components, but must be understood in itself) But again, this book was simply not meant for that type of analyses.

Overall this is an excellent introduction to biblical interpetation, and I highly recommend it to anyone seeking for clarity in a subject so often dominated by ambiguous shibboleths and often-impenetrable academic references to authors names without elaborating on their thought.

I have heard Dr. Lubeck speak and have leaned under him in many classes. I have used his Bible study methods notes for years and have shared them with others. This book is a collection of all those notes and more! His approach WORKS! It is a very helpful guide to read what is there and not get wrapped up in theological arguments. He gives tools in how to read the Bible in the structure it was written. It is refreshing to read a book that acually gives tools in reading the Bible and we don't have to be a scholar to figure out what the author was trying to say. The Bible was intended to be read and Dr. Lubeck helps the reader find the meaning of the text. I recommond this book to anyone who is serious about Bible study. To anyone who wants to teach the Bible. Or to anyone who want to just grow in the Word of God. This is a great Book!
Risinal
This is a very good book. It is clear and concise with its message of, key ways to read the Bible and get more out of it. It does not say to follow steps, but do research. It has made me more aware of the writing styles of the author, their personalities, intended audience, time & geographical location. I really recommend this book for someone who wants good read, to get a lot out of.
