Nee then goes on to show from the Bible that in order to properly study the Bible, one must be spiritual, must be consecrated to God, must be practiced in objectivity and accuracy, must be of a non-petty character--not straining out the gnat while swallowing the camel, must enter into the thoughts of the Holy Spirit, must enter into the facts recorded by the Holy Spirit, and must enter into the spirit of the Scriptures.
The second section of the book--"Methods of Studying the Bible"--is very much focused on practical methods, tools, and plans.
With this caveat in mind, Nee moves on to suggest that a student of Scripture needs to be cautious, focused, diligent and objective in their approach to study. Once a student of Scripture has learned to navigate with care, Nee encourages them to connect with the Spirit of the Living God who is alive and active in giving light and understanding to those who will seek Him. Nee writes, "[t]he ministry of the word is the release of the spirit."
The second half of the book moves from preparation to practice where Nee gives dozens of examples of how to study the Bible. He begins with a few "keys" to studying Scripture including memorizing and mediating on Scripture, two infrequent spiritual disciplines. Finally, Nee gives several suggested plans for studying the Bible including the examination of biblical main characters, the study of the various women of the Bible, a look at the significance and meaning of biblical prophecies, a study of the miracles and the parables of Christ, an in depth examination of biblical prayers and even a study of the significance of biblical geography.Read more ›
