Excerpts from the January-February 2010 Issue!
US Senate Chaplain Barry Black on Impossible Goals: Possible with Bible Study
Far from the desperate poverty of the Baltimore ghetto he was born into, Chaplain Barry C. Black has amassed an extraordinary list of achievements in his sixty-one years. Currently the 62nd Chaplain of the United States Senate, Black is also a retired Rear Admiral in the United States Navy. In this interview, he says, “I am using Bible study as a time of communion, reflection and interaction with God.”
Convinced from an early age that God wanted him to excel, Black earned a Doctorate of Ministry from the Eastern Baptist Seminary in Pennsylvania and a Ph.D. from the United States International University in California. About the Bible, he says, "It takes us away from the things that are seen, or temporary, in order that we can see the unseen, which is permanent. It enables equanimity."
Acts Top 40: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
The book of Acts is almost as much of a maze as Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace. It’s hard to keep the cast of characters in your heard. As you navigate Acts, you inevitably run into someone you don’t recognize and wonder, “Should I know who this person is? Will I need to remember them for later?” And the problem just compounds when the next character is introduced.
With a startling 164 individuals, groups of people, “gods” and nations mentioned in Acts, it’s not surprising that it’s a difficult read. Fortunately, the problem now has a remedy—the Acts Top 40. If someone is crucial to the book of Acts, they made our cut. Consider this a character–based Cliff Notes to Acts.
More is More for the Editor of the Ryrie Study Bible
Asking the man who edited the bestselling Ryrie Study Bible about the importance of Bible reading is like asking Bill Gates if you should buy a computer. The answer is obvious. “What is important is regular reading, variety of reading, and the freedom to choose your path through the Bible,” says one of the most prolific Bible scholars of our time, Dr. Charles Ryrie.
The Ryrie Study Bible has helped millions of Christians worldwide understand the Bible's basic truths. Though he did not realize the effect his notes would have on Bible study when it debuted in 1978, Dr. Ryrie tells Bible Study Magazine he is overwhelmed by its impact, particularly on laypersons.
