Overview

See it. Study it. Do it. Many Christians focus on mechanical application of the Scriptures. In Experience Your Bible, the McDowells proclaim God's original design--the Scriptures are his way to reveal himself so he can enjoy a relationship with people.

The authors show how the Bible can radically transform believers' lives:

  • Intimacy. God created humans such that an intimate relationship with him is their only route to meaningful life. His written Word enables this relationship.
  • Relational experience. We must obey God's commands. Yet he also wants us to relationally experience things like acceptance, joy, and comfort with him and other believers.
  • Growth in love. Josh and Sean highlight the Holy Spirit's role in illuminating the Scriptures. They present proven tools to help readers study and "accurately handle the word of truth." Above all, they emphasize that study is the journey to help Christians more deeply love the author of the Bible, God himself.

When Christians experience the Bible and its author, they find wisdom, meaning, and fulfillment in life.

A key tool for pastors, leaders, parents, and youth workers--anyone wanting to proclaim and experience the life- and culture-changing Christianity the Bible reveals.

Over the years I've mentored many of my University students in their Christian walk, but any book I seemed to pick just didn't hold either my interest or the student's interest for long. In fact, every book I picked up seemed to be a regurgitation of the same o same. Just downright boring and "preachy". Within the first few pages of this book, I and my student were hooked. It is a highly personal book from the experiences of the McDowell's themselves. One can identify their journey with every aspect of one's own life. This book is a refreshing approach to this topic for any believer, new or old. This book communicates well, and though an easy read, it provokes a lot of deep thinking about how we approach the God of the Bible. It puts to death many of the approaches we tend to take in our Christian walk. You can't read a paragraph without identifying something in your own life that needs radical adjustment. This is the first book that has really opened communication with my mentors and myself. It is a must read!
