Though Christians believe the Bible to be the inspired word of God, it was still actually penned by men who wrote at a certain time in history. Hermeneutics is the science of Bible Study and involves tools and methods of study including determing historical context and intent of the writers.

The bible is not a magic book, it is a book with words just like any other book, and should be studied the same way as other books. While the bible is a holy book, the study of biblical scripture should not be seen as some mystical process. We'll provide you with more information on the science of studying scripture, giving you tools and practices to study the word yourself.
