Unlocking The Bible By David Pawson Reviewed by Freya Pickard At last a commentary by someone who not only really knows the Bible, but also has a dynamic relationship with God. What I like about David Pawson’s style is that he doesn’t tell you what to believe. Instead, he gives you the background of each book in the Bible and points you in the right direction. From there you have to go and find out things for yourself. It took me over a year, on and off, to read right through this amazing book. In the process, Pawson challenged and destroyed many ill-conceived ideas ingrained in me from a traditional church upbringing. He also confirmed many conclusions I had reached by myself regarding the Bible and the Church which was confidence boosting. This book is not for the faint-hearted. If you’re not interested in what the Bible really says (not what the institutionalised Church tells you it says) then don’t bother reading it. But if you what to find out what Christianity is really about, then this is the book for you. Pawson’s language is simple and would be easy to understand for people with English as their second language. He claims that a 12 year old would be able to understand his sermons without any problem. This is probably the only other book, apart from the Bible, that a serious Christian needs.
