When reading the word "grains" thoughts revert to the book of Ruth (2:7) where Ruth picks up grains from the field. Likewise, Klaus Potsch in his book, picks up grains from scripture, analyzes them with the help of their chiastic structure and shows you how to do the same. After peeling the outer layers of the structures, Klaus gleans a key message found in the middle. Personal illustrations bring Grains to life, and together with a detailed analysis of each Grain, the reader is led on a path toward being able to himself/herself grow in faith. May Grains fall on fertile ground. You will love Dr. Potsch's pithy, profound, and practical "gleanings from the field." These nuggets of biblical insight will lift your heart, sometimes cause you to smile, and most of all, encourage your walk with Christ. - Dr. Joseph Dillow. Grains have been of great personal encouragement to me. Klaus Potsch has a way of taking the Bible and making you feel as if you were there when the story or parable was taking place. Great insights, coupled with practical applications, is the genius that is found in each Grain. - David A English, Cru, Leadership Development, Author and Speaker. For many years Klaus has provided good biblical insight and instruction through his Grain studies. I always find them helpful both for my personal reflection and learning as well as a valuable model for one's own study and dissection of the Scriptures. - Rev. Gary Preston, Frankfurt, GER.
