Dig Even Deeper
Full Product Description
Discover the message of a Bible book for yourself by using tools which help you 'dig deeper'. In the authors' own words, 'We want to share with you why we think it means what it does, how we came to our understanding of the verses, what discoveries we made. Rather than a Hollywood movie, this is going to be more like the how-they-made-the-movie footage.'
'I have never seen a burning bush, have never suffered a plague of boils (even as a seventeen-year-old the acne wasn't that bad), have never parted my bathwater and walked through the middle, have never been to Mount Sinai, let alone heard God speaking from thunder on the top of it,' says Andrew Sach. 'What possible relevance does the book of Exodus have to me?'
We set about discovering the message of a Bible book for us today using various tools (first introduced in Dig Deeper). The Repetition tool helps us to see that God's name is a big deal. The Context tool shows us why it was important to beat the Amalekites. The Quotation/Allusion tool uncovers a miniature garden of Eden where we least expect one. And so on.
Rather than a Hollywood movie, this is more the how-they-made-the-movie footage that you get in the DVD extras. As well as showing you the treasure, we want you to grow in your ability to unearth such treasure for yourself in other Bible books.

Dig Even DeeperTim Leffler, via The Good Book Stall
This is a follow on to the highly acclaimed and well received Dig Deeper and does what it says on the box. The book takes the reader through an in-depth study of the book of Exodus as a template for the whole Bible using their particular style of study. As passionate advocates of DIY interpretation they commend, correctly, that personal extended study and analysis of the text in question is required prior to referral to a published commentary. As they guide the reader through Exodus, Sach & Alldritt utilise and demonstrate the techniques laid out in the Dig Deeper book which is perhaps the main flaw of this text; much of the flow and context is lost without this prior knowledge and the short appendix at the end with 2 line r&éacute;sum&éacute;s is not sufficient to equip the reader. Buy both books and implement the techniques as instructed and the student will be well equipped, well led and guided in a valid study skill.
The authors have a healthy aversion to reliance on only study Bible notes or using any single commentary as a reference tool and their pearls of wisdom tucked away in another appendix could more helpfully be included in an opening chapter. I would recommend this book to anyone who is serious about equipping their Bible study with an effective technique but this is not straightforward as a “stand-alone” book. Buy both books and implement them and the reader will possess an enviable gift that should bless many.
