Book Review: Deeper into the Word

My latest review for Bethany House Publishers features the book Deeper into the Word: Reflections on 100 Words from the New Testament by Keri Wyatt Kent.

As the title suggests, the book provides insight and commentary on 100 words and topics found in the New Testament. It provides brief background information on each word, including its original root and meaning and the context in which it was used. The book also includes some of the author's personal reflections on the words, making this more than just a typical reference book.

While I'll most likely use it when I want to dig a little deeper into the meanings of referenced words, the book could also be used as a daily devotional or study guide. It's definitely not the most comprehensive reference work I've seen, but the short passages pack enough information to provide a little more understanding into the use of the words in the New Testament.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the Bethany House Publishers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
