Lord, Teach Me to Study the Bible in 28 Days

Well–known Bible teacher Kay Arthur leads readers into the fascinating world of inductive Bible study where God Himself becomes the teacher (Psalm 119:102). With more than 60,000 copies sold, this book teaches readers how to study Scripture and specifically mark the text to unlock its meaning. In just 28 days, readers learn how to study the Bible book by book, understand what they are reading, recognize key words and concepts, discover the main point of any passage of Scripture, and apply life-changing truths to everyday life.

Go deeper with studies on specific Bible passages

When it comes to your personal study time, don’t be left without the tools you need to dive deep into God’s Word. A great place to start might be a guided study of one book of the Bible. Do you want to know more about the book of Isaiah? Or are you interested in learning about the story of Ruth? Do you want to study the poetry of the Psalms? Dive into resources that examine a specific book of the Bible, giving you background on the writer of the book, enlightening cultural information, and rich biblical context.

I can’t think of a better combination than a Bible study on Ephesians written by an English professor. Heather’s writing style is warm and relatable while delivering the timeless truths of Scripture for which we’re so desperate. If you’re longing to be chosen, filled, strengthened, and renewed, look no further than this study on Ephesians.

Focus on a theme with topical Bible studies

What does the Bible say about suffering? How does the Bible shape our marriages? How do we learn to choose joy? Sometimes we want to see what the Bible has to say about a specific topic or theme. Dive into Bible studies that are rooted in Scripture, yet allow you to explore tough topics you are wrestling with.
