The hundreds of hours spent researching and proving these forty methods will enable you to find one that will fit your goals and begin enhancing your understanding of God's Word, today. Whether you are a teenager or a mature Bible student, a Sunday school teacher or a pastor, a stay at home mom or a busy executive: you will find in the pages of this book, a number of Bible study methods that will add excitement and enjoyment to your study of God's Word. In addition, you will have resources at your fingertips that will help you to train and encourage others who want to learn how to dig into the Scriptures as well.
Why do we need a method to study the Bible; isn't it enough to have a desire to know God's Word as we simply read the Scriptures? While a desire to know God's Word is an absolutely, necessary motivation, unless we have a plan to act upon, we are bound to fail. A Bible study method is a plan. So, each of the forty methods in this book provides a different plan that will help you to think through the passages you are reading. They will allow you to slow down and patiently and prayerfully reflect upon the Scripture you are studying. Each method provides questions to answer, charts to fill out, and a variety of other ideas on how to draw the most from your time in God's Word.
Each chapter in this book contains step-by-step instructions for a study method that you can immediately begin applying to your Bible reading. I would encourage you to try each of the forty methods at least once. They will teach you new ways to approach both difficult and familiar passages and help you to absorb more of their meaning.
PASTOR LLOYD PULLEY (Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Old Bridge ) says, "Wow has Andy shattered the cold stone ceiling of Bible study! No longer should the Bible remain mysterious and reserved for the theologians. Many Bible study methods morph into boring laborious monotony, but not this one. Learn to Study the Bible makes knowing the Bible adventurous, deeply personal, thought provoking and just plain fun. No matter where you open this book you will discover great new methods of digging into the treasure of Godís Word. Whether the chapter on Daily Devotions, the Rethink & Restate Method or Verse by Verse Charting, the next journey is more fun than the last one. Anyone wishing to cultivate the same passion for Godís Word that has transformed the author will love this book."
