“A good interpretation must pass one crucial test—it must conform to the author’s intended meaning.” (Page 27)
“Application questions should be closely related to the main points of the passage. It is better to have three or four scattered throughout the study than simply one or two at the end.” (Page 41)
“A good introduction should have three characteristics: First, it should be interesting.” (Page 38)
“1. Approach questions. An approach question is asked at the beginning of the study before the passage is read” (Page 38)
“Third, an approach question can reveal where our thoughts or feelings need to be transformed by Scripture” (Page 39)
