Mundane or motivational? Lackluster or lively? Redundant or reviving? What words would describe your personal Bible study? Be honest. If you're like many people, you've probably felt at one time or another a twinge of guilt about not getting fully enjoyment out of personal Bible study time. You may wonder how some people can percolate with enthusiasm over the same passages you've read time and time again—unmoved. What's their secret? Howard Hendricks knows that the "secret" is really no secret at all. It is simply a case of practicing effective Bible study methods. But to practice them you must know them. And that's where Howard Hendricks and his son Bill can enlighten you and show you the steps to living by the Book.
“‘This book will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from this book.’ That was true then, and it’s still true today. Dusty Bibles always lead to dirty lives. In fact, you are either in the Word and the Word is conforming you to the image of Jesus Christ, or you are in the world and the world is squeezing you into its mold.” (Page 13)
“How can anyone believe in supernatural miracles when the world is obviously governed by natural laws and forces” (Page 81)
“recognized the parallels between the life of Joseph and the life of our Lord” (Page 155)
“same thing when we come to the gospels. For example, of Matthew’s 1,062 verses, at least 342” (Page 148)
