More Precious than God: Discovering the real wealth of Scripture
MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD
Discovering the real wealth of Scripture
What the author has to say about this book:
“To be able to explore the wealth of God’s Word, remains one of the great joys of my life. I like to disseminate the Gospel in a simple way on a Sunday in a mission situation. I also enjoy doing Bible study with students, and from time to time officiate at a Wedding, write a meditation for a magazine or hold morning or evening devotions at a conference. This will explain the variety which you will find in this volume: brief meditations, opening addresses and sermons and also more systematic Scriptural exegeses.”
Prof. Bennie van der Walt dedicates this volume especially to his brothers and sisters in Christ on the African continent. His wish is that they will find something in it to provide them with renewed faith, hope and love in the service of the Lord; that they will experience the same joy as the author did in discovering the immeasurable wealth of the Scriptures- not even to be compared with the value of gold!
The author, B J van der Walt, was Director of the Institute for Reformational Studies and Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the Potchefstroom University for Christian Higher Education, Potchefstroom 2520, Republic of South Africa.
Comment by a reader:
The author here offers clear and penetrating explications of Scripture and his applications are relevant and topical for the (South) Africa in which we live. The joyous gratitude for what God has done for us vibrates through all the chapters and truly leads us to a discovery of the wonderful riches of Scripture. There is a great and crying need in Africa for Bible studies of this kind.

Comment by the Publisher
Although these studies were written in the 1990s, they still hold there value as they show how the author grappled with momentous political changes taking place in South Africa in the light of the Scriptures. In that sense, they are instructive for those facing political and social challenges in other situations as well.
Aside from that, they are beautiful expositions of the Scriptures with respect to life, love, marriage, youth and old age, and death, as well as intensive study of the Beatitudes as a guide for a life in this world which is faithful to God.
