In 'Unlocking the Scriptures', Cyril Barber "walks us through a specific text (Abraham and Sarah) of the Bible, showing us how to discover its riches," writes Warren Wiersbe, well-known author and conference speaker. He goes on to say, "You're not just holding a book in your hand, you're holding a key that can open the doors of Scripture and make exciting discoveries."
Dr. Barber has earned these glowing words with a lifetime of intense Bible study and ministry. His academic endeavors under Dr. Howard G. Hendricks of the Dallas Theological Seminary prepared him early on to study and to teach others how to study for the most benefit. He knows well the patience and diligence required to get the most out of studying the Bible, as well as the rewards for those who persist. He says, "Bible study requires diligence, an easy-to-learn technique and perseverance. In the end, however, one's efforts are handsomely rewarded."
In the intervening years, Dr. Barber garnered degrees from American, British and Canadian institutions as well as earning his doctorate from Biola University. He has served on the faculties of Trinity Evangelical
School, Rosemead School of Psychology and Simon Greenleaf University; At present he serves as Associate Pastor of Plymouth Church in Whittier, CA, responsible for pastoral care and visitation, counseling and teaching. He is the author of over 30 books and numerous journal articles.
Charles C. Ryrie says, "The Bible is the greatest of all books; to study it is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals." Whatever time you spend with "Unlocking the Scriptures" will be
