Overview

What is Bible study, anyway? The answers are many and diverse! Is it the same thing as just reading through the Bible, or does true Bible study involve treating it differently from any other book?

Here Kathleen Nielson calls laypeople interested in Bible study to the crucial starting points and approaches that the Bible itself demands. She not only analyzes current trends, but also points the way forward, toward the most fruitful and powerful study we can have of God's inspired Word.

Bible Study: Following the Ways of the Word winsomely highlights not a rigid set of methods, but a clear approach to Bible study-one that acknowledges the Scripture for what it is and faithfully enables us to take in the very words of God and submit ourselves to them. It examines just what Bible study should involve, according to the truths and principles given to us in the Bible itself.

So come and learn what Bible study truly is and should be, and let Kathleen be your guide as you follow the ways of the word!
