    I have read many books on bible study, but this one is great for anyone! For a new Christian, it gives a helpful and balanced foundation. For a Christian who needs some encouragement to reconnect with scripture, it is an excellent source of motivation and direction. For an experienced bible student, it helps bring things back to the basics and teaches us again of our dependance on the Spirit and humble place before God’s life transforming Word.

    I keep this book handy whenever I am writing letters and need a quick quote of encouragement. Each section is separated by emotion, etc… and pages of one line to paragraph size scriptures follow.

    I bought these as gifts for the ladies in my Bible Study group and they were so thrilled. This book gives scriptures that are good references for many different types of situations. It’s a lot easier than searching and searching through the Bible aimlessly. Though not intended to replace the Bible, these scriptures are a starting place for more intense Bible study.

    Initially the author builds a strong case for studying the Bible from one’s heart, not just mentally. He explains that figuratively, the heart in the Bible refers to out innermost thoughts, emotions, and will. So in approaching the subject we do so in a spiritual sense. He contrasts the two disciples on the Emmaus Road who had their hearts burn within them as the risen Lord Jesus opened the Scriptures to them with the Pharisees and Saducees who limited their understanding of God’s Word to the mental aspect.

    He makes an excellent point that God gives certain people a supernatural ability to teach the Word, as explained in Romans 12. Therefore, indiidual Bible study needs to be enhanced by insight gained from reputable teachers. Gifts are meant to be used. The teacher is blessed in the giving and the student is edified and instructed as a recipient.

    In situations where the Bible does not address a specific issue believers face, principles are given that can be applied. God’s Spirit agrees with His Word. This is also a gift of God the enhance’s a Christian’s life.

    Several helpful Internet sites are given to assist those wanting to followp on his advice. He aptly warns against putting too much emphasis on any one teacher, noting that spiritually mature Bible teachers will encourage students to cross check their teachings and verify for themselves the authenticity of what they’re taught. With that in mind, I disagree with the author about portions of Scripture speaking to an individual. Context is vitally important to accuracy, however Jesus Himself used portions of Scripture. I learned this from Billy Joe Dougherty. The Holy Spirit can quicken a truth to an individual that another person reading the same passage will miss. Overall this is a nice addition to one’s library on Bible study, written in a straightforward, easy to understand manner. I finished it in one setting.

    Though small, the book is powerful both in motivation and content. The passion of the writer and his know-how make this small booklet highly valuable. The price is more than reasonable.

    The world is full of preachies who do their best to drum doctrine down your throat when the most important of aspect of your life as a Christian is studying the Word for yourself. Letting the Bible prove itself can be a gigantic task and the helpful aide (along with atlases, concordances, dictionaries, and commentaries) will be a short guide laying down simple principles that help your Bible study. The work by Robert M. West is an excellent companion in this task of understanding the Word of God. His suggestions (as they should be) are practical, exhorting, and supportive. He does more than generally make a statement; he divides it into aspects of exploration, asking us to think it through and investigate it for ourselves. Let the Scriptures prove themselves to you so that you grow into an understanding of the Word and less in the interpretation of someone else. He provides stories of what can go wrong if we jump to conclusions. In a basic way, he takes what he has learned and encourages us to find out what we can come to know. Guides to help us grow are welcome in my world. Don’t bypass this book. The price is right and it will do the one thing we need in this world and that is to help us make the Scriptures ours instead of being pressed into the mold of the preachies.

    I ordered one of these books for each one of adult kids, neither of which is what would be called ‘religious’, but both of which appreciate this book. It quotes verses from the King James Version translation. There’s quite a bit from the book of Proverbs. Everyone has things they have to deal with and work through in this live; and this is a nice, uplifting little book that could help.
    I’m in agreement with some of the other reviewers that it would be good to drag out your Bible and read the verses in context. Merely picking out a verse or two from the Bible and basing your entire belief system on those really isn’t going to cut it.

    This is a good topical compilation of Bible verses rooted in the promises of God. It’s no substitute for Bible and devotional reading, but a nice supplement reference tool. The topics are varied and practical for the ups and downs of the Christian walk. I recommend this little book.

    This is an excellent text book to use for teaching people how to study the Bible. It is condensed, concise, and yet it clearly and plainly explains basic guidelines for how to study the Bible, how to find out what it means, and then how to use these truths in your daily life to live the life that God has purposed for you to live. Many thanks to Robert West for his diligent and thoughtful insights in “How To Study the Bible.”

    Great book if you need encouragement. It breaks down different areas you may be struggling with such as Faith, Health, Finance, Friends etc and gives you a list of God’s promises relating to those areas. I love it and I keep it by my bedside. A must have.

    My husband & I received this as a gift from his mother,which was given to her by a freind at work. I finally had the time to read and enjoy this book thinking I could return the favor to someone else like she did.Maybe this will help a family member or friend of mine. So I’m thinking of ordering several for different ones. Thank You Wendy Olive
