Review 1 for Getting the Message
Date:October 26, 2009
Pastor Derrick Lamar Smith
I rate this book five stars because it's what I've been looking for for ages and eons! Dr. Doriani gives a simple and thorough approach to understanding the Word of God and great skills on how to communicate it. This book is a must for all serious students of God's Word and for those of us who have been given the mantle of Proclaiming it to the world.

Doriani understands the profound challenge of interpretation and teaches it with profound clarity. "Getting the Message" balances information and application, while using stirring illustrations to keep readers engaged. Cheers to a text that is useful for the young Christian, the small group leader, and the pastor.
