Format: Paperback
Just a few months ago I came to the sudden and perhaps not-so-startling realization that although I have been reading the Bible for more than twenty years I had never really been taught how to study it. I have been told of the importance of spending time each day reading God's Word, meditating on it and even memorizing it, but I do not ever recall being taught how to systematically study it.
After explaining this predicament to a friend of mine, she recommended the inductive Bible study approach, which she had only just discovered through buying the New Inductive Study Bible. Kay Arthur edited that version of the Bible and knowing she was a proponent of the inductive method, I decided to read How To Study Your Bible by Arthur.
I do not intend to go into detail about the Inductive method of Bible study. There is any number of resources available in bookstores and online that can outline the method in detail. Essentially, though, it begins with understanding the context of the big picture (the Bible) then works to the smaller picture (a specific book of the Bible) and so on until the study leads to specific words. The method relies heavily on note-taking and Bible marking. There is a whole system of Bible marking that Arthur recommends which helps in identifying themes and patterns. The appendices are filled with useful information about how to best use concordances and expository dictionaries. They even go into some detail about the tenses, moods and voices of Greek verbs!
Although the book sometimes appears as an advertisement for the New Inductive Study Bible, it does a fantastic job of outlining the method and rationale for the inductive approach to Bible study. This book is a valuable resource and I highly recommend it.

Promoting the Inductive Method of Bible study where the scriptures are allowed to speak for themselves, Kay Arthur's book puts the Bible back at the center of Bible study--where it should be.
Arthur's book outlines the Inductive Method step-by-step and explains how to use several Bible study tools that will greatly enrich your study time.
Many times, Christians go to Bible study tools too early and miss out on "treasure" that they could have discovered on their own. Only after you have done your initial studies should you refer to other Bible study tools to compare and contrast what you have found.
This book is highly recommended as any book promoting the Inductive Method should be.

I've been a Precept student for over a decade now, and there's nothing like this. In fact, this tool is so good (as are Precept's study courses) that seminarys across NA recognize it as solid... some will even transfer Precept courses for accreditation towards a degree. If you want to get serious about your time in the Word and want to find meat instead of fluff, then this is the best place you could start - learning how to interpret and apply the Scriptures for yourself. The methods that Precept Ministries teach are solid and true - the novice to the scholar can can benefit from this form of study method. This book shows you how to do everything from word studies to structured analysis of text. Excellent stuff through and through and highly rewarding for the serious Bible student. Get a copy and dig in!

Format: Paperback
After reading the reviews posted to "balance out" the 5-Star rating I gave this book I took the time to re-read it. I found that the phrase International Inductive Study Bible was used infrequently in the book, as a whole, and not "once every several pages" as the reviewer accused. A number of these occurences appear as footnotes which are obviously added by the publisher, Harvest House. I did not find the mentioning of any products, including the International Inductive Study Bible, distracting in any way. Neither did I find that it impuned the character of the author, Kay Arthur. It is quite obvious that this book is designed to help the beginning Bible study student in their technique of inductive study. To point out that a Bible exists which is already arranged in a format conducive to inductive study is in no way offense to the student-reader. I, in fact, found it very helpful as I strived to apply the study techniques taught in this book. The reviewers failed to mention that Mrs. Arthur also recommends a number of other books/resources which are neither published by Harvest House nor Precept Ministries. Finally, please note that Mrs. Arthur is the spokesperson for the International Inductive Study Bible. If mentioning this excellent tool a dozen times in her book will spur one person on to study the Word of God then more power to you Kay Arthur! You can read and read and read about how to study your Bible but the rubber meets the road when you pick up your Bible and DO IT! I am not blinded by how much "I like this book" but I am persuaded by the tremendous impact that a disciplined, personal study of God's Word has had on my walk with Him. I again give this book 5-Stars!

Format: Paperback
We hear all of the time how difficult it is to understand the scriptures. This difficulty leads to feelings of discouragement and often a lack of sincere study in the Word. Those that are walking through life without the Word are walking a dark path without the assistance that God intends for each of us (Ps 119:105).Without God's Word we cannot understand either the boundaries or freedom that God expects in our lives.
It is so important to know the difference between reading and studying God's Word. Ms. Arthur's study resource offers a plan to extract the important truths of the Bible and allows you to see where and how to apply them tour life. If you've ever struggled to understand what you're reading from God's Word, plunge into this helpful book. You won't be disappointed.
