It is interesting to see all the different ways one can study and reflect on God's Word. For those who think the Bible is difficult to understand, I would recommend going through this book. You could start at any chapter to find a study way that you might find easier, then work your way to other study methods which will take you deeper into God's Word. It is the Holy Spirit who enables us to understand God's Word as He is our Teacher. If you find it difficult, ask Him to open your eyes to see His truths and how they apply to you and your life. Ask Him to show you all about God, and He will direct and illuminate your understanding and fill your heart with delight and joy as you come to know Him in a deeper way.

A Handbook for Studying the Bible July 12 2009
By Mama of a Dozen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a very interesting handbook for studying the Bible, for the new Christian, to the Christian who has been reading God's Word for fifty years. Learn to Study the Bible: Forty Different Step-by-Step Methods to Help You Discover, Apply and Enjoy God's Word is written by Andy Deane, who is an associate pastor at Calvary Chapel Old Bridge in central New Jersey where he oversees a junior high ministry.

This 248 page book contains 40 different methods of studying your Bible, from basic Bible study methods, major Bible study methods to creative Bible study methods, and not just in written words, but also by example with handwritten notes to show how it can be done. There are methods such as Daily Bread (basic - one of the simplest ways to begin discovering the specific truths in five steps); Timothy Method (basic - using 2 Timothy 3:16-17, find the doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness); Verse-by-Verse Charting (major - using a five-column chart), Bible Characters, Biblical Topics and Bible Themes. One of my favorite methods I use, that I usually have called the Inductive Bible Study Method, is a combination of a few studies in this book, including, Chapter Details, Book Overview, Book Details and the Messy Bible Method. (I thought that funny! I do like to mark my Bible!).

Learn to Study the Bible is ideal for anyone to encourage them - from the seasoned Christian who needs to find new ways to discover God in the Scriptures, to the new Believer, who just does not know where to start and how to even begin studying God's Word. This handbook would be ideal for highschool homeschoolers, learning to use different Bible study methods, using it as a one or two year curriculum as they work through the different methods and Scripture. It would also be ideal for a graduation or birthday gift, for young and old alike. It's recommended!

By Kevin C. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Bible study is something that is so overlooked and under-appreciated. This book takes it from a scholar's level and helps people understand that ANYONE can study the Bible! It's very applicable and since it presents so many different ways to do it, there's sure to be one (or a few) that fit every reader.

A Wonderful Bible Study Resource May 8 2009
By Bijan Mirtolooi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Because I love the scriptures and know the importance of both reading and studying the Bible, I am always thankful for practical tips that make Bible study exciting and personal. This book, with the 40 different methods mentioned, has had a direct impact on the way I approach Bible study, offering creative and easy to follow methods when analyzing texts of scripture. For anyone looking for practical methods in Bible study, I heartily commend this volume.

Great Resource! Sept. 26 2009
By Johanna C. Wood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is packed full of ways to make scripture study more interesting and insightful. Mr. Deane has assembled a wide variety of ways to approach scripture - from looking at entire books of scripture to focusing on one single verse. The forty different approaches mean that study doesn't become routine, and also suggests that there will be new ideas and inspiration to be gleaned each time a passage of scripture is studied from a new angle. For anyone who is wondering how best to ponder God's word, this book offers concrete suggestions for putting pencil to paper and mind to thought.

Great Motivation for Delving Deeper into the Word Oct. 28 2009
By JK Albin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Before agreeing to review Learn To Study The Bible, I checked out author Andy Deane's website and a sample chapter from his book. The site contained informative bible study articles and a well-written excerpt. Both made me want to learn more from this pastor and Christian author.

The first section of Deane's book was everything I hoped it would be as the author described the four core components that serve as the foundation of every bible study. Deane then used the remaining chapters to share forty different bible study methods that readers can use to interpret and apply scripture to their lives.

While I felt that some of the bible study methods were too complex to commit to memory and others were similar to techniques already mentioned, there was something to be gleaned from each chapter. I especially liked the hand-written examples Deane provided to demonstrate the appropriate use of each method.

There are too many to mention in this review, but two of my favorite quotes from the book are found below:

"When we study the Bible, we should do so with the intention of allowing it to transform us. Our goal is not to master it, but rather, to be mastered by it." (p. 20)

"An unwillingness to apply the Scriptures to our lives will inevitably lead to spiritual insensitivity to the Lord and to His people. If a Christian is careless in Bible reading, he will care less about Christian living." (p. 35)

In summary, I believe that this pastor and author has a lot of knowledge to offer. He has motivated me to delve deeper into the Word and will inspire other readers to do the same.
