In science, the concept of biased interpretation refers to the possibility of two people coming to different conclusions when given the same data. It suggests that foregone conclusions and personal thoughts, feeling and beliefs allow people to use data for different purposes – the result often leading others to be skeptical. Wary of this concept guiding her understanding of the Bible, and her effort to help others understand the Bible, author Kathryn Cortes pens her new book “Just the Word: Foundation Series 1.0” (published by WestBow Press) which attempts to take an unbiased look at the Bible.

“Just the Word” is the first book in a planned series in which Cortes studies specific words in the Bible, revealing what she calls a comprehensive view of each word or topic. She offers readers simplicity through a straightforward question and answer format, avoiding interjecting with her own commentary to allow, as she says, “…the Word of God to inspire and be its own commentary.”

As a professional dietitian, Cortes was inspired by the reinvigorated focus on eating fresh whole foods for optimal nutrition, and she began thinking of ways to return people to a simple, whole concept approach regarding Bible study. “I saw an unfilled need regarding Bible study material and felt impressed to develop a product to meet that need,” she says.

“Everyone is seeking answers to their problems,” says Cortes. “The Bible has those answers. My book helps them find those answers in the Bible.”
