How is your Bible reading? Do you find that you read certain books frequently (the Gospels, Psalms, certain Epistles), never touching others (Ezekiel or Leviticus for example)? Maybe you walk steadily through the Bible but, quite frankly, it is more of a chore than a delight. Some books are so hard to understand that you don't get much out of them.

This book is for you.

It aims to help the Bible reader understand more clearly what they are reading and thereby gain more from the Word of God. It also warns against illegitimate understandings of the biblical message which open to false conclusions.
It draws heavily on Psalm 23 in its first part, engaging in a practical exercise of interpreting a passage already well known and loved by Christians.

It also highlights the different components of biblical writings, such as poetry, prophecy or storytelling, as well as other literary genres such as the apocalyptic. It emphasizes the importance of the reader's attitude and draws attention to the application of reading.

In doing so, he allows him to better understand the Bible and find happiness in reading it.
