Gary discusses a recent book by Jerry Bowyer as well as a talk given by Carl Trueman on 2 Kings 2. Jerry's book and Carl's sermon are both thick in details that most Bible readers miss or overlook. The details are not just adding color to the story; often they ARE the story. We need to get more familiar with these details—including geography, economics, occupations, etc.—and with the culture and traditions of the time. These two examples are how the Bible must be interpreted in order to better understand the larger story of Scripture.
