The primary objective of this book was to examine different types of bible study methods. As a Christian Education teacher, I believe that it is important for one to be well versed on the different types of bible study methods. Also in terms of diversity I believe that it is important to have a variety of bible studies to examine. The author began each chapter with an overview of the specific studies that were to be examined. He also provided samples of each study with examples to support the bible study. A summary was provided at the end of each Chapter.

Murray presents ten teaching methods for Bible study. Some of his ideas are quite good including theological Bible study, all senses Bible study, depth Bible study, and shared praxis Bible study. In these four methods, Murray helps us move past the written words to personalization and deeper understanding on both the part of student and teacher. However, in comparing all ten teaching methods Murray tends to be redundant, as there is a good deal of overlap in the ten methods. Additionally, some of the more current methods are not included in this book, which could be due in part to the fact that the material is somewhat dated, i.e. no material is presented which covers learning stations and/or cooperative learning groups. This book would be a good starting point for a novice Bible study teacher; but, for someone with any teaching experience, this book is not recommended.

In this book Dick Murray, professor of Christian Education at Perkins School of Theology, provides several methods for teaching the Bible. His methods endeavor to place the focus on God's Word--not on the teacher or the method--making the Bible accessible to adult and youth learners with varied learning styles. The book provides easy-to-follow procedures, often with several options. Murray provides several practical approaches to helping people learn about the Word of God.

This book is easy to follow and contains concrete ways to help leaders engage students in God's word. Murray discusses many techniques that can be easily implemented. This book is an excellent resource for someone who has never taught the Bible. You can pick this book up, read it, and immediately implement its techniques.

Murray presents a myriad of Bible teaching methods for adults and youth replete with examples and illustrations for direct application. He provides the reader with easy to follow step-by-step directions for each method. Murray further provides guidelines for selecting a method based on context, content, audience, and setting. The book is divided into three main sections. The first section provides guidance for Sunday school and Bible school settings. The second section provides guidance for a Pastor who preaches and teaches to a congregation. The third section provides guidance for teaching those who teach classes and Bible studies. The text is further augmented by suggested Bible study resources currently available, including addresses and contact information. Murray further advises the reader in the use of concordances and commentaries for further information. This book is a useful addition to any Christian educator's library.
