Brief Insights on Mastering Bible Study
Serious Bible study can be a daunting task. It takes effort and skill, but it can be done well by anyone. This book provides an honest account of what will and won't help you in your Bible study endeavors as well as expert observations on Bible study tools.
The Bible is the most important book in history. It's also one of the most misunderstood. Studying Scripture involves much more than reading. Each of this book's 80 short chapters consist of statements or insights about Bible study done well or poorly and what makes that the case. You'll learn:
- How to cultivate effective study habits.
- What the Bible (and, specifically, what your Bible) is.
- How (and how not) to accurately interpret the Bible.
- Where to find and how to use effective Bible study tools.
The Bible was put together over 2,000 years ago. There are serious obstacles to grasping its meaning and message today. In Brief Insights on Mastering Bible Study (part of the 60 Second Scholar series), biblical scholar Michael S. Heiser is your guide, providing easy-to-read lessons for grasping God's Word.
Adept Bible study isn't about a checklist of tasks and doesn't happen by making the books of the Bible conform to a method. It's about using the right tools, thinking carefully, and sticking to it. You don't need to be a scholar to understand the Bible.
