Publisher Comments:

WARNING: THIS BOOK COULD CHANGE THE WAY YOU READ THE BIBLE FOREVER. As God’s written Word to us, the Bible is the single most powerful agent for transforming our lives. But too often our Bible reading becomes routine and fails to engage our hearts as well as our minds. In Reading the Bible with Heart and Mind, Tremper Longman will help you discover the incredible power of the Scriptures to mold you into the character of Christ. “Even though the Bible is powerful,” writes Longman, “we don’t change just because we read it. Our minds may be engaged, but something needs to happen to our hearts as well.” If you want to rekindle your passion for God’s Word, this book will help you learn to accurately read, understand, and respond to God’s Word in ways that will develop deep intimacy with Christ and transform you into His image.

Synopsis:

Renew your passion for Scripture and learn how it can mold you into the image of Christ by reading God's Word with your heart and your mind.

Synopsis:

Learn the history of The Navigators from one who was there at the start.

Synopsis:

As one of the original Navigators, author Jim Downing’s partnership with Dawson Trotman and Lorne Sanny has given him a perspective like no other. In Living Legacy, Jim reveals personal reflections, leadership lesson, and humorous anecdotes of two men whose lives have influenced millions.

Synopsis:

As God's written Word to us, the Bible is the single most powerful agent for transforming our lives. But too often Bible reading becomes routine.

Reading the Bible with Heart and Mind will equip you to accurately understand and respond to God's Word in ways that will develop deep intimacy with Christ.

About the Author

Dr. Tremper Longman III is the Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies at Westmont College. He earned a B.A. in Religion at Ohio Wesleyan University, an M.Div. from Westminster Theological Seminary, and a Ph.D. in ancient Near Eastern studies from Yale University. Tremper has authored or co-authored twenty books and written numerous articles. A number of these works are interdisciplinary. His Literary Approaches to Biblical Interpretation (Zondervan, 1987); Complete Literary Guide to the Bible (contributor and co-editor along with Leland Ryken; Zondervan, 1993) and numerous articles approach the study of the Bible through literary criticism. He also co-authors books with the psychologist Dan Allender (Bold Love [NavPress, 1991]; Cry of the Soul [NavPress, 1994], Intimate Allies [Tyndale House Publishers, 1995], Bold Purpose (Tyndale House Publishers, 1997]), a church curriculum called The Intimate Mystery of Marriage (InterVarsity Press, 2005), and most recently Breaking the Idols of Your Heart: How to Navigate the Temptations of Life (IVP, 2007). His interest in history and historiography is expressed in A Biblical History of Israel [co-authored with Iain Provan and Phil Long; Westminster John Knox, 2003]). He has also written commentaries on Song of Songs (Eerdmans), Ecclesiastes (Eerdmans), Daniel (Zondervan), and Nahum (Baker). A commentary on Jeremiah and Lamentations is forthcoming with Hendriksen Press. For InterVarsity Press, he has produced three books: How to Read Psalms, How to Read Proverbs, and How to Read Genesis. In addition, he is one of the main translators of the popular New Living Translation and has served as a consultant on other popular translations of the Bible including the Message, the New Century Version, and the Holman Standard Bible. Tremper and Alice have three sons. Tremper IV is married to Jill and works in Hartford. They have a daughter, Gabrielle. Timothy is an antitrust lawyer working for Howrey Simon in Washington D.C. Andrew is a management associate for Bank of America in Malibu, California. For fun, Tremper watches movies to relax and for exercise, he plays squash.
