When did Bible Study become the broccoli of the Christian life?
Eat more broccoli! It’s good for you! Study the Bible more… attend more “Bible studies!” It’s good for you!
Shouldn’t studying the Bible be more than simply something that is good for us? Shouldn’t studying the Bible together with other followers of Jesus actually strengthen us for a healthy lifestyle of following Jesus on the journey of the Christ-life? Did we miss a turn somewhere?
Let me ask you a question. If more (or better) Bible studies is really the answer, how in the world do we have so many people who:
• Have gone to Sunday School for decades
• Have attended, helped in, and taught Vacation Bible School
• Have participated in multiple 13-week or 40-day video-based Bible study courses
• And are Biblically illiterate and don’t have any idea how to think or live Biblically?
It seems that we have a disconnect somewhere.
I’d like to offer, in this brief book, a way of rethinking Bible study. A way that refocuses studying the Bible with the intent of making disciples. A way that emphasizes not just the “what” of Bible study, but also the “how” and the “why” of studying the Bible.BUY NOW
