Some passages in the Bible are hard to understand. Some are commonly misinterpreted because of the failure to translate properly, outmoded language in translations, traditional misunderstandings, or cultural differences. Many sincere Christians struggle to interpret them. In this book, Pastor and Counselor Jay Adams considers fifty commonly misunderstood passages that have repeatedly arisen during the past seventy years. Not all of his explanations of the passages are original. Indeed, if they were, you would have reason to suspect them. But in this book Adams simplifies complex matters, so that Christians who are searching can understand them. The goal of this book is that the Bible will be better understood, so that the great truths about the Lord Jesus Christ may be comprehended more fully and, as a consequence, the blessings of those truths my be extended to many.

Another great little read from Dr. Adams. Fifty Difficult Passages Explained will be familiar territory for some, completely new ground for others but helpful to everyone. You may not always agree with Dr. Adams in this book but you will be challenged to dig a bit deeper into some of the passages you may have heard interpreted one way for years but actually may be incorrect or misleading.
You won’t find full and comprehensive expositions here. They are 1-3 pagers that will give you the essentials and get you hunting for your commentaries to do your own further study.
Good little book to keep handy as a quick reference as well.
