This interesting book cites 17 commonly misused Scripture passages and explains their true meaning. But first the work tells why Scripture passages are often misused and misunderstood, using the Genesis account of Satan’s deception of Adam and Eve. The book also offers a final chapter on how the reader should use Scripture appropriately.

So often people are trapped into making a passage say what they want it to say. Adolf Hitler is cited as one example. A few of the Scripture passages dealt with are “Judge not” in Matthew 7:1; “Where two or three are gathered” in Matthew 18:20; “Ask anything in My name” in John 14:13 and 14; “All things work together for good” in Romans 8:28; “I can do all things” in Philippians 4:13; and “Repent, and . . . be baptized” in Acts 2:38.

This might be an excellent book for new believers, who need to develop in their spiritual understanding of the Word.
