My wife just published a book about How to Study the Bible and trace the one big storyline of the bible from beginning to end. It is available on Amazon for $9.99 in a Kindle or Paperback version. She would recommend purchasing the Kindle version, because it includes so many links to great websites and resources. Here’s the Amazon description of the book:
Maybe you’ve read the Bible but want to dig deeper and know God and know yourself better. Throughout the book I use the analogy of making a quilt to show how the Bible is telling one big story about what God is doing in the world through Christ. Quilting takes much patience and precision, but the result is something beautiful that you can use, display or give to others for warmth and comfort. Hopefully this book is an accessible resource – somewhere between Sunday school and a seminary level of education. I hope orderly systematic folks as well as free spirits can use this tool since we desire both form and function as well as beauty. Wouldn’t it be great if along our own Emmaus road we said to each other, “Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked to us on the road, while He opened to us the Scriptures?” Luke 24:32
Our Main Book Divisions will be COMPREHENSION, INTERPRETATION, APPLICATION and then SHARING. We will work from the text to understand what the original author intended the original audience to know, and travel from there through the cross of Christ before we apply the text to ourselves.
So, from your Head (Comprehension) to your Heart (Interpretation) to your Hands (Application and Sharing) let’s start our journey. Let’s learn how to study the Bible together, and pray that our hearts and minds will be transformed by our glimpses at our Almighty God as He has revealed Himself to us in His Word. Hopefully this book can be used to help equip all of us to Study, Savor and Share the Scripture.
