Book Review by Bible Study Magazine (Logos Bible Software)

Bible Study Magazine is the most helpful magazine that I receive. It has tons of great articles on how to study the Scriptures. If you haven't checked it out you really need to soon. I was just told that my new book will be reviewed in the Nov-Dec 2009 issue of this magazine. Be sure to look for it in the magazine. An advance copy of the review can be read below as well.


Learn to Study the Bible: 40 Different Step-by-Step Methods to Help You Discover, Apply, and Enjoy God’s Word
Xulon Press, 2009

Even for the most avid Bible reader, studying the Book can become dry and repetitive. That’s why Pastor Andy Deane wrote Learn to Study the Bible—a guide that offers 40 Bible study methods—more than any book of its kind.

Deane presents an image of the Bible as a treasure trove for the reader’s keeping. The book has seven sections, beginning with a segment discussing the importance of observation, interpretation, and application—a method developed by Robert A. Traina and furthered by Precept Ministries—for effective study of Scripture. The chapters in each section provide Bible study methods appropriate to particular groups (e.g., teenagers, new Christians, longtime Christians). A handwritten example of each method accompanies its description.

One of the concluding chapters suggests building a reference library, including a concordance and Bible dictionary. It also offers guidance about how to use them for more meaningful Bible study. Deane advises that people use more than one method when studying the Bible—to maintain joy and satisfaction. Deane’s work is ideal for anyone interested in deepening his or her daily devotions.
